Langdetect plugin for Elasticsearch 2.0.0

(Jörg Prante) #1


a new version of my langdetect plugin has been released.

It is now compatible to Elasticsearch 2.0.0.

Also, an example has been added to demonstrate how to retrieve detected language codes from the index.

I was wondering if there are plans to support 2.2.1. I recently installed ELK from the repository, but get an error that the plugin only works with 2.2.0.

ERROR: Plugin [langdetect] is incompatible with Elasticsearch [2.2.1]. Was designed for version [2.2.0]

Sure, I have just pushed out two releases, for Elasticseach 2.2.1 and for Elasticsearch 2.3.1

Thanks for the incredibly fast response. I am new to this, so not sure if I am missing something, but I see this error when attempting to install the plugin now:

NOTE: Unable to verify checksum for downloaded plugin (unable to find .sha1 or .md5 file to verify)
ERROR: Could not find plugin descriptor '' in plugin zip

Tried with:
bin/plugin install jprante/elasticsearch-langdetect
bin/plugin install

Please follow the instructions on and use

./bin/plugin install

Sorry...forgot to mention that I also tried that URL but get 404:

And similar with from the README.

Ok, github does not let me upload this particular tagged version and gives only errors messages ("nothing to push").

Meanwhile, you can try download from this URL on my host

Sorry for inconvenience.
