elasticsearch-query-builder

Utility to assist in building Elasticsearch query JSON.

Features:

  • Wildcards (?, *) in string input
  • Collates boolean choices into an array of keys, e.g. {red: true, green: false}

Installation

$ npm install elasticsearch-query-builder

Usage

The following example will match any Smith whose first name starts with John (e.g, John, Johnny) who has chosen either green or blue.

var esqbuilder = require('elasticsearch-query-builder');

var q = {};

var c = {
    firstname: 'John*',
    lastname: 'Smith',
    choices: {red:false, green:true, blue:true}
};

esqbuilder.stringCriteria(c.firstname, q, 'firstname');
esqbuilder.stringCriteria(c.lastname, q, 'lastname');
esqbuilder.selectCriteria(c.choices, q, 'choices');
console.log('Elasticsearch query:', JSON.stringify(q, null, '  '));

The output is:

Elasticsearch query: {
  "filter": {
    "and": [
      {
        "query": {
          "wildcard": {
            "firstname": "john*"
          }
        }
      },
      {
        "term": {
          "lastname": "smith"
        }
      },
      {
        "terms": {
          "choices": [
            "blue",
            "green"
          ]
        }
      }
    ]
  }
}
