Notice! Bring Your Own Device meeting!

ElasticSearch provides a very powerfull search engine and a simple php client, but the documentation on practical use in php is limited. In his talk on the Laravel Meetup Groningen Peter Steenbergen filled the gap: He explained the internals of the search and filtering page of shop application in PHP using Laravel and vue.js. His code is remarkably simple, but what is does is surprisingly cool! (

This hands-on provides skeleton and instructions for building such a page yourself. To reach an audience as large as possible it works without application frameworks. Instead of a shop it results in a restaurant search page that includes filtering by geograpical location als well as by features and price.


Henk Verhoeven is an independend PHP developer. He recently developed the ElasticSearch related components for a comparision site in the social domain.
