How it works
This packages replaces the default search handler with a custom one that runs search queries in ElasticSearch index directly instead of WordPress.
In addition to better search results this also allow you to have real-time search results as you type. See an example here.
You need to ensure your ElasticSearch index is not fully exposed to the public. You most likely want to add some layer around your ElasticSearch index to lock down your index to avoid unwanted queries or requests.
