1. Mirage: Intro

The Elasticsearch query DSL supports 100+ query APIs ranging from full-text search, numeric range filters, geolocation queries to nested and span queries.


Mirage is a modern, open-source web based query explorer for Elasticsearch.



It offers a blocks based GUI for composing Elasticsearch queries and comes with an on-the-fly transformer to show the corresponding JSON query API of Elasticsearch.

3. Roadmap

Mirage works with any Elasticsearch 2.x, 5.x, 6.x and 7.x index currently. Below is the roadmap for query support.


✓ indicates queries already supported.
➕ indicates queries we would like to support and see contributions for.
❌ indicates queries that can't be supported currently.


| Full-text Queries | Term Level Queries | Joining Queries | Geo Queries | Specialized Queries | Span Queries |
| :--------------------: |:---------------------:| :--------------:| :-------------------:|:-------------------:|:------------:|
| ✓ Match | ✓ Term | ✓ Nested | ✓ GeoDistance | ➕ MoreLikeThis | ✓ SpanTerm |
| ✓ Multi-match | ✓ Terms | ✓ HasChild | ✓ GeoBoundingBox | ➕ Template | ➕ SpanMulti |
| ✓ Query String | ✓ Range | ✓ HasParent | ✓ GeoShape | ❌ Script | ✓ SpanFirst |
| ✓ Simple Query String | ✓ Exists | ✓ ParentId | ✓ GeoDistanceRange | | ➕ SpanNear |
| ✓ Common Terms | ✓ Missing | | ✓ GeoPolygon | | ➕ SpanOr |
| | ✓ Prefix | | ✓ GeoHashCell | | ➕ SpanNot |
| | ✓ Wildcard | | | | ➕ SpanContaining |
| | ✓ Regexp | | | | ➕ SpanWithin |
| | ✓ Fuzzy | | | |
| | ✓ Ids | | | |
| | ❌ Type | | | |


Besides broadening the query support, we would like to see Mirage support Elasticsearch v5.0.



4. Build Locally

sh
$ npm install
$ bower install
$ npm start


This will start a local webserver running on port 3030 serving mirage locally.


Tests

sh
$ npm test


will fire up the jasmine tests.


master branch: Elasticsearch Plugin

sh
$ npm run build_es_plugin


chrome-extension branch: Chrome extension

sh
$ npm run build_chrome_extension



5. How to Contribute

  1. Find a query that can be supported from the roadmap.

  2. Fork the mirage repo and update in "dev" branch.

  3. Create the query files.

  4. Build locally and run npm test.

  5. Submit a PR!



6. Get Mirage

Mirage is available as a hosted app and as a chrome extension.


Use hosted app

or


Get the Chrome extension

Note: We're working on bringing this back.


or


appbase.io dashboard

Every app in appbase.io has a query explorer view, which uses mirage.



or


Run with docker

Works with Elasticsearch versions 1.x, 2.x, 5.x, 6.x and 7.x.


sh
docker run -p 3030:3030 -d appbaseio/mirage

CORS settings: To make sure you enable CORS settings for your ElasticSearch instance, add the following lines in the ES configuration file.


http.port: 9200
http.cors.allow-origin: "/.*/"
http.cors.enabled: true
http.cors.allow-headers: X-Requested-With,X-Auth-Token,Content-Type, Content-Length, Authorization
http.cors.allow-credentials: true


Install as Elasticsearch Plugin

[Deprecated] Works with Elasticsearch versions 1.x and 2.x. Site plugins have been disabled starting v5.0. We recommend running mirage with docker instead.


sh
plugin install appbaseio/mirage


Note: Elasticsearch has a CORS header issue with v2.3.0, use v2.3.2 and above.


http.port: 9200
http.cors.allow-origin: "/.*/"
http.cors.enabled: true
http.cors.allow-headers: X-Requested-With,X-Auth-Token,Content-Type, Content-Length, Authorization
http.cors.allow-credentials: true


After installing the plugin, start the elasticsearch service and visit the following URL to access it.


http://127.0.0.1:9200/_plugin/mirage


Note: If you use Elasticsearch from a different port, the URL to access and the http.cors.allow-origin value in the configuration file would change accordingly.


Mirage can be used along with ⊞ DejaVu to browse data and perform CRUD operations inside an Elasticsearch index.
