Focus of this library is to make it easier to manage elastic indices (wit mappings / settings), create reusable query building (manual or from request).

  • Adds ability to manage elasticsearch indices with wrapper class which will help to you create/update index write documents (with bulk mode) etc.
  • Adds ability to create a query builder with query filters for each index.
  • Adds ability to build a query builder from request data (reusable component).


  • Composer
  • PHP 7.4+


1. Add custom repository to composer.json

"repositories": {
        "type": "git",
        "url": "https://github.com/pionl/elasticsearch-query-builder.git"

2. Install via composer

composer require pion/laravel-lelastico

3. Add the service provider (Laravel 5.4 and below - supports Auto discovery)




Set elastic hosts

For development, you can use default value in the config without password: localhost:9200

Use ELASTICSEARCH_HOSTS environment for setting elastic search hosts. Format.

Resolve elastic search client

$client = resolve(\Elasticsearch\Client::class);
$client = $container->make(\Elasticsearch\Client::class);

Mapping types constants

Property mappings types using constants like:

  • MappingTypes::KEYWORD
  • MappingTypes::TEXT
  • MappingTypes::TEXT_WITH_KEYWORD
  • MappingTypes::SHORT
  • MappingTypes::SHORT_WITH_KEYWORD
  • MappingTypes::LONG
  • MappingTypes::LONG_WITH_KEYWORD
  • MappingTypes::INTEGER
  • MappingTypes::DATE
  • MappingTypes::BOOLEAN
  • MappingTypes::FLOAT
  • MappingTypes::textWithAnalyzer(string $analyzer, string $searchAnalyzer), builds

Adding indices

  1. Create your indices by extending AbstractElasticIndex and implementing createIndexName for elastic index

    • Implement propertyMappings for custom mappings.
    protected function propertyMappings(): array
      return [
          'id' => MappingTypes::KEYWORD,
          'name' => MappingTypes::TEXT_WITH_KEYWORD,
          'is_verified' => MappingTypes::BOOLEAN,
          'email' => MappingTypes::textWithAnalyzer('fulltext'),
          'created_at' => MappingTypes::DATE,
          'updated_at' => MappingTypes::DATE,
          'deleted_at' => MappingTypes::DATE,
    • Implement settings for custom index settings
    protected function settings(): array
      // Add support for partial text search
      return [
          'index' => [
              'analysis' => [
                  'filter' => [
                      'fulltext_filter' => [
                          // Always from start of beginning of each token
                          'type' => 'edge_ngram',
                          'min_gram' => 3,
                          'max_gram' => 20,
                  'analyzer' => [
                      'fulltext' => [
                          'type' => 'custom',
                          'tokenizer' => 'standard',
                          'filter' => ['lowercase', 'fulltext_filter'],
  2. Create or update lelastico.php config with indices classes.

    return [
        'indices' => [
  3. Update or create indices in elastic (stores settings / mapping) using php artisan elastic:indices

    Updates the elastic indices
            --only="only", handle only given index
            --f, will delete the index and data. Will new index with mappings
            --d, will delete the index and data
            --skip-settings-update, when upadting, the index is closed / opened due the settings update. You can skip it
            by provided this option.


By default we are sorting by _id after any HasSorting logic to ensure that pagination is correct.

You can turn this feature by using $builder->setSortById(false);

To enable sortable behavior add HasSorting trait to your instance of AbstractBuilder and implement method allowedSortFields.

 * Allowed fields for sorting.
 * Key is the name of the field in the query.
 * Value is the name of the field in the index.
 * @return array
public function allowedSortFields(): array
    return [
        'goals' => 'goals_count',
        'minutes' => 'played_minutes',

With sorting enabled you can sort the results using sort request query parameter. This parameter accepts list of fields for sorting in format {field_name}:{sort_direction}.

Available directions for sorting are asc and desc and if not specified the default sort direction is set to asc.





  • log_measurement Logs every query to log (default false). You can use ELASTICSEARCH_LOG_MEASUREMENT env.
  • log_debug Debug logs every query data to a log (true in local environment). You can use ELASTICSEARCH_LOG_DEBUG env.
  • service Enables to change available indices (implement IndicesServiceContract or extend IndicesService)
  • prefix Used prefix for index names - uses APP_NAME and replace '-' to '_', converts name to slug variant.
  • hosts A list of IPS for your elastic search - https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/client/php-api/current/configuration.html. Use ; separator. Default localhost:9200.


  • improve documentation
  • add make console.
