This opens up a great amount of flexibility when forming queries.

Any chance in seeing this feature soon ?

#2 Updated by Ewan Makepeace over 10 years ago

I just posted to #9180 - I think rather than implementing an in house advanced search syntax we should consider bolting on an existing search framework such as http://www.elasticsearch.org/ which will offer all those capabilities and a lot more?

#3 Updated by Maher Gamal over 10 years ago

I agree on reusing existing search frameworks and elasticsearch looks quite interesting.

Does ElasticSearch have Ruby bindings, is it easily deployable?

I was thinking about using Sunspot but maybe as a plugin.

There's some work on this going on over here: https://github.com/Undev/redmine_elasticsearch/issues/22#issuecomment-150867964

Is there someone monitoring this thread who has experience with ElasticSearch and Tika who might be able to help out?

Danil's plugin seems to work fine for text files but not for Docs or PDFs. Does anyone here know if there is a trick to getting Elastic to index formatted documents?
