A CLI client for exporting elasticsearch data to csv

Project description

Build Status Latest Version Python versions Package status Package coverage

This project is to just have a simple cli command to export data from ES using the CPU’s, and Elasticsearch’s Sliced Scroll Search for fetching large datasets. It’s intended to be used in Data workflow for extracting data out.

The performance seems better when no_of_workers == no_of_shards_for_the_index.


This is still early in the development and a bit rough around the edges. Any bug reports, feature suggestions, etc are greatly appreciated. :)
