Powerful tool to create a rich search engine experience

2018-06-19

Developing a powerful and a fast search engine, dealing with content coming from various data sources, inside our website.

Pros

Indexing documents can be done through a REST API, as for querying data.

Cons

Learning ElasticSearch seems to be a bit more difficult than learning it's competitor, Solr. In my experience, Solr has a better support for Drupal CMS which we use a lot in my company. But our last project using ElasticSearch was a success, thanks to all it's powerful features.

Pros

The product is very popular among many companies, therefore there is a big community who can share their knowledge, the search is very fast and the installation process and integration are very easy.

Cons

I leas like the Elasticsearch itself does not provide much except just storing the information, the additional tools (Kibana and Logstash) are required.
