For an upcoming side project the core feature is search. For this reason I was thinking about searching today. I’ve played a little with ElasticSearch in the past, but haven’t really gotten my hands dirty with it.
I knew that I needed to search geospatially, which I’ve done in the past using PostGis and PostGreSQL. I wondered if ElasticSearch could search geospatial data — it does, quite well in fact!
Here’s some resource on ElasticSearch I found useful:
- Boosting by Popularity
- Integrating ElasticSearch with Laravel
- Algolia, Algolia vs ElasticSearch
- Quora, Algolia vs ElasticSearch
