[Pulp-list] Pulp 3.0 Technology Stack Justifications

Check out the Django Elasticsearch py package called Django Seeker. It supports elasticsearch 1.x and 2.x and the querying/faceting you were looking for.


My company maintains it FYI. Per our Django developers, haystack ES seemed under-maintained for our needs.

Unfortunately, Django itself doesn't meet our needs for search when using postgres as the DB.

To get it, we've got to go out to a plugin. The plugins available for this are pretty slim pickings, and haystack stands out as the best option among them. Since Django's our interface to the DB, we'd have to bolt on our own search functionality to make the DB do this work.
