Install ElasticSearch

Go to ElasticSearch guide – Getting Started » Installation and follow step by step to install ElasticSearch.

Test local install of ElasticSearch
– by command line:
curl -XGET localhost:9200
– or enter http://localhost:9200/ url on your Browser.

The result should be like this:

   "tagline":"You Know, for Search"

Add ElasticSearch to Angular 8 Project

1. Install the type definition

Run command:
npm install --save-dev @types/elasticsearch

You will see an elasticsearch directory in node_modules folder:


2. Add dependency

Open package.json in your Angular 8 Project, add:

"dependencies": {
	"elasticsearch-browser": "^15.1.1",

Re-install your Angular 8 Project:
npm install

Use ElasticSearch in Angular 8 Project

1. Import and use

import * as elasticsearch from 'elasticsearch-browser';


  private client: elasticsearch.Client

  private connect() {
    this.client = new elasticsearch.Client({
      host: 'localhost:9200',
      log: 'trace'


import { Client } from 'elasticsearch-browser';

  private client: Client;

  private connect() {
    this.client = new Client({
      host: 'http://localhost:9200',
      log: 'trace'

2. Add CORS config

To work with ElasticSearch, we need to enable CORS by adding in /config/elasticsearch.yml:

http.cors.enabled : true
http.cors.allow-origin : "*"
http.cors.allow-methods : OPTIONS, HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE
http.cors.allow-headers : X-Requested-With,X-Auth-Token,Content-Type, Content-Length

3. Ping to test

Write the code below to ping to ElasticSearch:{
  requestTimeout: Infinity,
  body: 'hello JavaSampleApproach!'

Open Browser to check, it should be:

TRACE: 2018-08-13T07:34:46Z
  -> HEAD http://localhost:9200/
  hello ozenero!
  <- 200


1. Generate Service & Component

Run cmd:
- ng g s elasticsearch
- ng g c test-es

=> Project Structure:


=> App Module:

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { TestEsComponent } from './test-es/test-es.component';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

2. ElasticSearch Service


import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { Client } from 'elasticsearch-browser';
import * as elasticsearch from 'elasticsearch-browser';

  providedIn: 'root'
export class ElasticsearchService {

  private client: Client;

  constructor() {
    if (!this.client) {

  private connect() {
    this.client = new Client({
      host: 'http://localhost:9200',
      log: 'trace'

  private _connect() {
    this.client = new elasticsearch.Client({
      host: 'localhost:9200',
      log: 'trace'

  isAvailable(): any {
      requestTimeout: Infinity,
      body: 'hello ozenero!'

2. Test Component


import { Component, OnInit, ChangeDetectorRef } from '@angular/core';
import { ElasticsearchService } from '../elasticsearch.service';

  selector: 'app-test-es',
  templateUrl: './test-es.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./test-es.component.css']
export class TestEsComponent implements OnInit {
  isConnected = false;
  status: string;

  constructor(private es: ElasticsearchService, private cd: ChangeDetectorRef) {
    this.isConnected = false;

  ngOnInit() { => {
      this.status = 'OK';
      this.isConnected = true;
    }, error => {
      this.status = 'ERROR';
      this.isConnected = false;
      console.error('Server is down', error);
    }).then(() => {;



<h3 class="col-md-12 text-center">Elasticsearch server status: {{status}}</h3>

4. App Component


import { Component } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'ozenero';
  description = 'Angular - Elasticsearch';


<div class="container" style="width: 400px">
	<div style="color: blue; margin-bottom: 20px">

5. Check Result
