Splainer: The Elasticsearch Relevance Sandbox that Tells you Why


(Doug Turnbull) #1

Some of you from the Solr community may know about Splainer. Well Splainer now supports Elasticsearch!

What's Splainer? Splainer is a relevance sandbox. It doesn't just parse the relevance explain, it tells you why. It decomposes the relevance explain into a summary of matches that matter most. Then from that top-level you drill down with more human-readable explanations of the explain output. If you're interested, read more in the blog post.

Here's the TLDR gif version of Splainer:

Splainer comes out of the search relevance practice of OpenSource Connections. Splainer is the baby brother of our relevance tuning product Quepid. Quepid is a test-driven relevance toolbench. It gives you all the functionality and insight of Splainer, but more holistically over all your candidate keyword searches. It keeps a history of all your relevance work and lets you snapshot and save results for later comparison.

Splainer is open source. Bugs and contributions welcome on github

Happy Searching!

Nice tool! It helps a lot with getting oversight on what's happening with large queries.
