Yes, ElasticSearch can be now installed and used much easier (that’s probably not a breaking news because I’m writing about it after one month since I have got a confirmed info) but summer is not the best time for writing a blog’s post 😉.)!
In this post I will focus on the dilemma – when exactly a .msi file can be useful and when it is better to stick to the old fashioned command line. At the end of the post I also added some personal experiences with ElasticSearch logs when working with ES as a service and when running it from a command line. Continue Reading
Two weeks ago I had an occasion to talk to a very inspiring person – Karolina from Girls Gone Tech. If you haven’t heard about this blog or want to learn about girls in masculine areas of life just have a look at our interview! Continue Reading
I can’t be the only person who hates waiting for the code to compile and run… Especially when I want to test only a small part of it! That’s a total waste of time! But good news everyone, I found a way to run a part of my C# code without building the whole project!
Ctrl + E, E – the magical shortcut!
Ok, so if we want to run just the fragment of our code – this is what we do:
1. Select the fragment of code we want to run. Continue Reading
Last time we talked about creating indexes. We also searched our index in some easy manner. Today I would like to focus on other search-alike operations – bool queries.
BTW If you can’t wait to write some “real” code in C#, stay tuned, we will do it in the near future.
Recently I wanted to run ElasticSearch (here I wrote how to do it) on the fresh copy of Windows. So, I downloaded the package, typed
in CMD and I got this error:
The syntax of the command is incorrect.
If you also get this ‘meaningful’ message someday, check if you Continue Reading
This is the 20th and the last post in the GetNoticed! competition. So it means that… I DID IT! I survived till the very end, I managed to create 20 posts in 10 weeks. ReMaster is still alive (it could be fed better but let’s leave this subject :P). It’s time to celebrate, I mean, have some sleep 😉.
What I’m proud of?
I have a blog! One year ago I was sure that my programming life is boring and even the problems I encounter while coding are too boring to write about them. And I believed that there is everything already written so what’s the point in writing the 100th ASP.Net tutorial?
Now I don’t know which subject from my long TODO list should I choose first!
I also fear less about pushing my code to github PR. I know that my style of coding is far from perfection 😉 and my code tends to be messy 😝 so that’s a huge step! I think I can even say that breaking this barrier in my head is the greatest outcome of the competition!
Last week I wrote about installing ElasticSearch on your local machine. Today I will focus on using this search engine – indexing and searching for data.
A few days ago the Polish companies data provider published a new version of its API. I found out about it accidentally and decided to spend a moment to upgrade API used in ReMaster. Hopefully, from my perspective, it doesn’t change anything crucial so I will not have to change any logic concerning companies import (and that’s a real blessing considering the fact that testing imports lasts ages and I hate waiting for a result). Continue Reading
This week I spent some time with ElasticSearch. I thought it would be nice to get a little know-how in case a companies table in my pet project’s database grows up so much that searching for a data will last forever. Well, considering the fact that one of the two most important features in my project is searching, I can’t believe I didn’t think about it earlier!
A few possibilities
There is a few search engines I could use. I was considering a Lucene (but it’s so old… I remember using it about 6 years ago!), Solr (I heard it’s the fastest one) and ElasticSearch (some says it’s aimed for bigger projects). So I decided on ElasticSearch… my project is gonna be huge, right? 😛 Continue Reading
