Create forms that run Elasticsearch queries

Project description

Create Django forms that perform ElasticSearch queries and filters.


Install using pip:

pip install django-elasticfilter


The filter forms are standard Django forms, with some small extensions. They inherit from elasticfilter.filterform.FilterForm. Fields to search and filter on are declared as fields on the form, which should inherit from elasticfilter.fields.BaseField:

from elasticfilter.filterform import FilterForm
from elasticfilter.fields import Query, Filter

class MyFilterForm(FilterForm):

    class FilterFormMeta:
        s = S().get_es(**ES_SETTINGS)\

    match = Query(required=False, fields=['_all', '_partial'])
    type = Filter(field='type')

Custom queries and filters

The provided Query and Filter classes are very basic. Writing custom Query and Filter classes is quite simple. For example, to filter results based upon the ContentType of the model:

from django import forms
from django.db.models import get_models
from elasticfilter.filterform import FilterForm
from elasticfilter.fields import Filter

class ContentTypeFilter(Filter, forms.ChoiceField):
    required = False

    def __init__(self, models=None, **kwargs):
        if models is None:
            models = get_models()

        self.choice_map = dict((model._meta.model_name, model)
                               for model in models)

        choices = [(key, model.get_verbose_name())
                   for key, model in self.choice_map.items()]
        kwargs.setdefault('choices', choices)
        super(ContentTypeFilter, self).__init__(**kwargs)

    def search(self, s, name, data):
        value = data.get(name, None)
        if not value:
            return s

        field = self.field or name
        content_type = ContentType.objects.get_for_model(self.choice_map[value])
        return s.filter(F(**{field:}))

class MyFilterForm(FilterForm):
    content_type = ContentTypeFilter()
