Examples

if (FALSE) {
(x <- connect())

if (!index_exists(x, "shakespeare")) {
  shakespeare <- system.file("examples", "shakespeare_data_.json",
    package = "elastic")
  shakespeare <- type_remover(shakespeare)
  invisible(docs_bulk(x, shakespeare))
}

docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10)
docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=12)
docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=12, source=TRUE)

# Get certain fields
if (gsub("\\.", "", x$ping()$version$number) < 500) {
  ### ES < v5
  docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10, fields='play_name')
  docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10, fields=c('play_name','speaker'))
} else {
  ### ES > v5
  docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10, source='play_name')
  docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10, source=c('play_name','speaker'))
}

# Just test for existence of the document
docs_get(x, index='plos', id=1, exists=TRUE)
docs_get(x, index='plos', id=123456, exists=TRUE)

# source includes / excludes
docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10, source_includes = "play_name")
docs_get(x, index='shakespeare', id=10, source_excludes = "play_name")
