Elasticsearch and thrift... and searching

Back to something technical for once

For some days now I've been working on some code that integrates a Zope 3 module with Elasticearch. I had the task of integrating it with the "thrift" transport... and was stuck for a long time. Whatever I did, my code went nowhere, throwing various exceptions from the Elasticsearch side ("StreamCorruptedException", yeah, sure...), being plain stuck and time out on the Python/Zope side. For the most part this was due to the simplest of reasons: Elasticsearch does provide thrift transport, but it needs the transport-thrift plugin for that. Also that wants to be configured in the elasticsearch.yml (or elasticsearch.json) config file. Obviously there must have been a big, fat pointer to this somewhere, but I didn't find it anywhere :-)
