Elasticvue usage

Before using elasticvue you have to configure your elasticsearch server according to how you want to use elasticvue.

Elasticvue usage

The browser extensions do not require you to do any kind of configuration (like CORS),
but they need the browsers permission to "acces data for all websites" so they can access your cluster.

Web app

You can use the hosted version of elasticvue to avoid installing anything.


Docker image

Download and run the image, then open http://localhost:8080:

docker run -p 8080:8080 \
           -d cars10/elasticvue

Building manually

Check the readme for instructions on how to manually build elasticvue.

Cluster configuration

Configure your elasticsearch server

You have to enable CORS if you do not use the browser extension, otherwise the browser will reject all requests. To enable CORS add the following to your elasticsearch configuration, based on how you run elasticvue:

# /etc/elasticsearch/elasticsearch.yml
http.cors.enabled: true
http.cors.allow-origin: <origin-url>
Configuration example
# Enable CORS
http.cors.enabled: true

# then set one origin:
# for docker / running locally
http.cors.allow-origin: "http://localhost:8080"
# web app
http.cors.allow-origin: /https?://app.elasticvue.com/
