Hi ,

Can i install elasticsearch on mobile devices and use it to index the docs available on mobile...offline?

If yes, could you please provide me the steps? else any pointers for alternate mobile search tool or mobile based crawler?

Thanks,
Rohan

Elasticsearch is not tested on mobiles devices, and I suspect it would be a bit heavy. So it might be an interesting thing to play with, but probably not something you should look into for an actual application that you want to enable offline search for.

Thanks Adrien,

Found this tool Elasticlunr which is meant for offline mobile search (for your reference)
