Awesome Contexture Awesome

Contexture abstracts queries/filters and results/aggregations from different backing data stores like ElasticSearch and MongoDB.

Contexture is a tool for running the Contexture DSL, which is primarily about abstracting queries/filters and results/aggregrations. Each leaf node in a Contexture Tree can affect other leaf nodes (e.g., acting as a filter) and has results of it's own which are affected by the other nodes. Non leaf nodes describe how leaves relate to each other, e.g. as a boolean join of and/or. Contexture can use different backing data stores such as MongoDB and ElasticSearch.

This page represents a curated list of Contexture websites, libraries, and resources. Our goal is to provide Contexture developers, both new and established, a place to discover and document awesome Contexture resources.
