Implementing "search as you type" example

Hi,

I'm trying to implement the "search as you type" example
from http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/_index_time_search_as_you_type.html

Can someone see what I'm doing wrong?

curl -XDELETE localhost:9200/my_index
echo

}
},

"type": "custom",
"tokenizer": "standard",
"filter": [
"lowercase",
"autocomplete_filter"

Sorry, I should also explain the problem :wink:

For both of the searches I'm getting the following:

{"took":1,"timed_out":false,"_shards":{"total":1,"successful":1,"failed":0},
"hits":{"total":0,"max_score":null,"hits":[]}}

For implementing good autocomplete I recommend you look at the completion
suggester - its much faster and has more capabilities. It was built
especially for that.

See http://www.elasticsearch.org/blog/you-complete-me/ and
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/search-suggesters-completion.html

You can then complement it with Phrase Suggester to recommend spelling
corrections etc

edge-grams are less than ideal for this use case given the above tools

That's fine, but I still want to know what I'm doing wrong in my example
(taken pretty much verbatim from the link provided).

That said, I am planning on evaluating both for my use case. The problem I
have with the suggester is the duplication. That said, I'd rather not
debate that right now as I've not even really looked into it yet :wink:
