i'd like to replace ransack with elasticsearch.

General • Asked by Joe Guerra

How would I go about that? There are plenty of elasticsearch gems, I don't know if i need something specific or can use a generic elasticsearch gem. I'm going to use the Bonsai Elasticsearch addon on heroku,


All my elasticsearch episodes are using the Searchkick gem which has been great for me.

You'll also need the ElasticSearch server running locally for development and then with the Heroku addon in production.

Great, i do have the local elastic search engine running. I tried to get kibana to work too, but something wasn't working.

I noticed bonsai elasticsearch has it's own gem. I'll try it out tomorrow.
