ElasticSearch plugin for DLE


New member
Hello dear forum members! It is necessary to write a plugin to replace the standard DLE search engine with ElasticSearch. It is necessary that new posts (news) are added to the index automatically. We need a search on the following fields: full_story, xfields, title, category, tags. Please send your suggestions or contacts to PM or here.
Use Elasticsearch PHP client to integrate
Index content into ES on publishing by extracting fields
Hook into DLE publication events to trigger indexing
Create a custom search form/template querying ES
Display ES results similarly to standard DLE
Sync content to ES periodically
Handle pagination, relevance, ranking differences

Break the project into phases:
Get basic search working
Improve relevance
Add advanced features
Optimize performance
Consultants can assist with complex integrations
