Brazilian Portuguese Metaphone plugin 1.0.0

(Anael Carvalho) #1

This is an implementation of the Metaphone algorithm for Brazilian Portuguese inspired by a number of works, chiefly among which is the "Portuguese Metaphone implementation in PHP" by "Prefeitura de Várzea Paulista"

A new token filter named 'br_metaphone' is made available for use with custom filters and analyzers.

Version 1.0.0 requires Elasticsearch 5.0.0.

Sample configuration:

  "settings": {
    "analysis": {
      "analyzer": {
        "myAnalyzer": {
          "tokenizer":  "standard",
          "filter": [

Feedback is very welcome - thanks!
