Elastic Search Client for Scala


Minimalistic Elastic Search client for scala. It's a thin wrapper around the java client, adding the following features:

  • Asynchronous interface
  • Based on Scala 2.10 Futures
  • Single dispatch method (execute)
  • Type-safe Request / Response pairs using 'magnet' pattern

The signature of the execute method (slightly simplified):

package  org.scalastuff.esclient
import org.elasticsearch.client.Client

implicit class ESClient(client : Client) extends AnyVal {
  def execute[Request, Response](request: Request): Future[Response]

Getting started

ESClient is available on maven central.

 libraryDependencies += "org.scalastuff" %% "esclient" % "1.0.0"

ESClient has been compiled for scala 2.10 and 2.11.


import scala.concurrent.Await
import scala.concurrent.Future
import scala.concurrent.duration.DurationInt

import org.elasticsearch.action.index.IndexRequest
import org.elasticsearch.action.index.IndexResponse
import org.elasticsearch.client.Client
import org.elasticsearch.node.NodeBuilder.nodeBuilder
import org.scalastuff.esclient.ESClient

object TestES extends App {

  val client : Client = 
  val response : Future[IndexResponse] = 
    client.execute(new IndexRequest) 
  println("Document id: " + Await.result(response, 5 seconds).id)
