Dream team: Neos and Elasticsearch

July 24th, 2017

Is it difficult to get a powerful search for your homepage? With Neos and Elasticsearch this is now a breeze. In 5 easy steps to your own Elasticsearch search.

Step 1:

Install the two packages 'flowpack/elasticsearch-contentrepositoryadaptor'  and 'flowpack/searchplugin' via composer:

    composer require 'flowpack/elasticsearch-contentrepositoryadaptor'
composer require 'flowpack/searchplugin'

Step 2:

Configure Elasticsearch depending on version. See the official documentation:
Flowpack.ElasticSearch.ContentRepositoryAdaptor Documentation

Step 3:

Configure the Elasticsearch packages and store the appropriate version and the appropriate data for the Elasticsearch server:

    Flowpack:
  ElasticSearch:
    ContentRepositoryAdaptor:
      driver:
        # Version of Elasticsearch
        version: 2.x
    clients:
      default:
        # Data of the Elasticsearch server
        -
          host: elasticsearch
          port: 9200
          username: ''
          password: ''

Step 4:

With the flow command 'nodeindex: build', the contents are indexed and can be found from then on:

    ./flow nodeindex:build

Step 5:

hen we just have to put the search plugin on a page:

After these 5 steps we have a fully functional search:

Nice to have:

So that the search is not only functional, but also looks pretty, I recommend to improve the search a bit with CSS.
