A drop-in replacement for the Haystack Elasticsearch backend which allows multilingual indexes for Django.

Project description

# django-multilingual-search
A multilingual Haystack plugin for Django and Elasticsearch.
The module is a drop-in replacement for the Haystack `ElasticsearchSearchEngine`.

Instead of a single index it creates an index for each language specified in `settings.LANGUAGES`.

A query is routed to the index of the currently active language.

[![Build Status](](

## Installation

Install with pip:

pip install django-multilingual-search

The major and minor versions of this project correspond to the Haystack version the package was
tested against. This version is for Haystack 2.3.1.

## Configuration

The app provides a drop-in replacement for the ElasticsearchEngine of Haystack.
To use it, specify this engine in ``:

'default': {
'ENGINE': 'multilingual.elasticsearch.ElasticsearchMultilingualSearchEngine',
'URL': '',
'INDEX_NAME': 'myproject',

For automatic indexing of new entries the Haystack
[signal processors](
can be used without modification.
