You have to download it, unzip it, make sure JAVA_HOME is set and launch it.
See https://fscrawler.readthedocs.io/en/latest/user/getting_started.html
I did not create yet any RPM/DEB packages. So if you want to run it as a service, you need to create the script files by yourself.

how to index pdf or text files to elasticsearch.

You can use ingest-attachment plugin in which case you don't need at all FSCrawler.

You can use FSCrawler.
2 modes for it:

  • It can crawl a dir which contains your files (default).
  • It can be run as a REST Service where you can "upload" your file.
