elasticsearch Indexing Data with codeiniter php

Indexing Data

We're now going to index some data to our ElasticSearch instance. We'll use the example of a blog engine, which has some posts and comments.

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/blog/user/dilbert' -d '{ "name" : "Dilbert Brown" }'

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/blog/post/1' -d '

    "user": "dilbert", 
    "postDate": "2011-12-15", 
    "body": "Search is hard. Search should be easy." ,
    "title": "On search"

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/blog/post/2' -d '

    "user": "dilbert", 
    "postDate": "2011-12-12", 
    "body": "Distribution is hard. Distribution should be easy." ,
    "title": "On distributed search"

curl -XPUT 'http://localhost:9200/blog/post/3' -d '

    "user": "dilbert", 
    "postDate": "2011-12-10", 
    "body": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat" ,
    "title": "Lorem ipsum"
To each of these requests, you should have received a response that verifies that the operation was successful, for example:

Let's verify that all operations were successful.

curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/blog/user/dilbert?pretty=true'
curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/blog/post/1?pretty=true'
curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/blog/post/2?pretty=true'
curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/blog/post/3?pretty=true'
Note that there are 2 main ways of adding data to ElasticSearch:

json over HTTP
Native client
We'll explore these in greater detail in a subsequent tutorial.
