There was a discussion at [6.3.0] homebrew recipe
about getting elasticsearch working again with homebrew - and it seems it's now working. It seems.
The problem is that now that I installed the homebrew version (which is based on the OSS distribution), I can't install x-pack (via
elasticsearch-plugin install x-pack). I understand that x-pack is not separate so this doesn't work anymore (at least like this) but is there some other way to get x-pack working on OSX?
I don't really have to use homebrew - it's just very convenient and always "just worked" before the whole change to "open up x-pack". Since that change, it's "just not worked". Is there some other recommended way people have to use elasticsearch on OSX? Or someway to get x-pack working again?
I use my MBP for local development. I could resort to a VM/docker, but it's so much heavier than just running ES locally (and that always worked).
