Hacking HOWTO

This covers setting up a development environment for developing on ElasticUtils. If you’re interested in using ElasticUtils, then you should check out User’s Guide.

External requirements

You should have Elasticsearch installed and running.

Install dependencies


$ virtualenv ./venv
$ . ./venv/bin/activate
$ pip install -r requirements/dev.txt
$ python setup.py develop

This sets up the required dependencies for development of ElasticUtils.


You don’t have to put your virtual environment in ./venv/. Feel free to put it anywhere.
