Have you ever wanted to test your app against a dev version of your
production CloudSearch? Is management saying budget constraints won't allow
this? Then Nozama CloudSearch is for you.

It is a light weight implementation of Amazon's CloudSearch service you can
run locally. Its has additional REST API features which allow inspection of
data in a way not available via Amazon CloudSearch.

Nozama is also a way to migrate from Amazon CloudSearch to ElasticSearch.

Version 1.1.2

This now supports text searching and uses ElasticSearch as it backend.
Facets are not yet supported. I use MongoDB to store the results of batch
upload runs. This will change in future as I believe I can use
ElasticSearch for this too.

It is BSD licensed and available now from pypi

  easy_install nozama-cloudsearch-service

Contributions are always welcome. Just fork me on github:


It also has documentation which it self hosts or can be seen on readthedocs:


All the best,
