ElasticSearch support

I saw some of the older threads about ElasticSearch support. Is it possible to make ElasticSearch work with Local? Have there been any recent updates that would make this easier?

Hey @HarryM, welcome to the Local Community Forums!

Local doesn’t have anything like this out of the box, but there has been a number people who have spun up something with Docker and then offload the search to that container.

It’s still a pretty manual process to get this working, so if this is a feature that you’d like Local to help out with, then I would recommend creating a feature-request here:


Any movement on this yet? Or at least links to the mentioned docker process?

Also note that the provided link to canny.io is dead.
