Complete noob - Easiest way to set up Elasticsearch index with json file and search from search box

Hi all!

Complete noob here.. I'm looking to learn more about Elasticsearch and would appreciate any guidance in setting up the following:

  • How would I set up an Elasticsearch index from a json file with 2-3 million objects to search through
  • How to search the index from a search box on my website
  • How to set up autocomplete to use from the search box

What do you all recommend?

Thanks!

The easiest way is probably to use the SaaS offer named app search: https://www.elastic.co/solutions/app-search

  • How would I set up an Elasticsearch index from a json file with 2-3 million objects to search through

Probably with all default settings. That's actually what I'm doing locally on my laptop.

  • How to search the index from a search box on my website

I'd recommend reading this although it's a bit old. https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/getting-started.html

  • How to set up autocomplete to use from the search box

Look at completion suggester. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.6/search-suggesters-completion.html
