Deprecated in 1.5.0.

The thrift transport is deprecated and will be removed in 2.0.0

The thrift transport module allows to expose the REST interface of elasticsearch using thrift. Thrift should provide better performance over http. Since thrift provides both the wire protocol and the transport, it should make using Elasticsearch more efficient (though it has limited documentation).

Using thrift requires installing the transport-thrift plugin, located here.

The thrift schema can be used to generate thrift clients.
