RSS River Plugin (ElasticSearch)

Here the non-technical stuff:

RSS River Plugin offers a simple way to index RSS feeds into Elasticsearch.

It reads your feeds with a regular period and index content.

As all rivers, it’s quite simple to create an RSS River :

  • Install the plugin and start Elasticsearch
  • Create your index (with mapping if needed)
  • Define the river
  • Search for RSS content

Rivers enable you to automatically index content as it arrives.

ElasticSearch offers default rivers for CouchDB, RabbitMQ, Twitter and Wikipedia.
