Kibana lets you interact with ElasticSearch easily.
Let's see how can we setup Kibana in 2 minutes on OSX
- Download Kiaban
- Extract the zip of tar
- Go to the extracted folder and execute following command
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
8000 is the port, can be port of your choice. Now point you browser to http://localhost:8000/
This shall work only for ElasticSearch running on localhost. To make it work with remote installation, update elasticsearch parameter in config.js of Kibana installation.
