Async backend for elasticsearch-py

Project Description

This is an adapter for elasticsearch-py providing a transport layer based on Python’s asyncio module. All API calls now return a future wrapping the response.

Sniffing (when requested) is also done via a scheduled coroutine.


import asyncio
from elasticsearch_async import AsyncElasticsearch

client = AsyncElasticsearch(hosts=['localhost', 'other-host'])

def print_info():
    info = yield from

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

AsyncElasticsearch introduces one extra parameter loop which can be used to pass in an event loop you wish the client to use. By default asyncio.get_event_loop() will be used.


elasticsearch-async is available via PyPI so you can install it using pip:

pip install elasticsearch-async
