Catmandu::Store::ElasticSearch - A searchable store backed by ElasticSearch


Version 0.0201


    use Catmandu::Store::ElasticSearch;

    my $store = Catmandu::Store::ElasticSearch->new(index_name => 'catmandu');

    my $obj1 = $store->bag->add({ name => 'Patrick' });

    printf "obj1 stored as %s\n" , $obj1->{_id};

    # Force an id in the store
    my $obj2 = $store->bag->add({ _id => 'test123' , name => 'Nicolas' });

    # Commit all changes

    my $obj3 = $store->bag->get('test123');


    # All bags are iterators
    $store->bag->each(sub { ... });
    $store->bag->take(10)->each(sub { ... });

    # Some stores can be searched
    my $hits = $store->bag->search(query => 'name:Patrick');

    # ElasticSearch supports CQL...
    my $hits = $store->bag->search(cql_query => 'name any "Patrick"');


This ElasticSearch interface is based on elasticsearch-0.17.6.


new(index_name => $name, cql_mapping => \%mapping)

Create a new Catmandu::Store::ElasticSearch store connected to index $name. The ElasticSearch supports CQL searches when a cql_mapping is provided. This hash contains a translation of CQL fields into ElasticSearch searchable fields.

 # Example mapping
 $cql_mapping = {
      title => {
        op => {
          'any'   => 1 ,
          'all'   => 1 ,
          '='     => 1 ,
          '<>'    => 1 ,
          'exact' => {field => [qw(mytitle.exact myalttitle.exact)]}
        } ,
        sort  => 1,
        field => 'mytitle',
        cb    => ['Biblio::Search', 'normalize_title']

 The CQL mapping above will support for the 'title' field the CQL operators: any, all, =, <> and exact.

 For all the operators the 'title' field will be mapping into the ElasticSearch field 'mytitle', except
 for the 'exact' operator. In case of 'exact' we will search both the 'mytitle.exact' and 'myalttitle.exact'

 The CQL mapping allows for sorting on the 'title' field. If, for instance, we would like to use a special
 ElasticSearch field for sorting we could have written "sort => { field => 'mytitle.sort' }".

 The CQL has an optional callback field 'cb' which contains a reference to subroutines to rewrite or
 augment the search query. In this case, in the Biblio::Search package there is a normalize_title 
 subroutine which returns a string or an ARRAY of string with augmented title(s). E.g.

    package Biblio::Search;

    sub normalize_title {
       my ($self,$title) = @_;
       my $new_title =~ s{[^A-Z0-9]+}{}g;
