I'm trying to have users in my organization use Elastic Search as a Solr replacement. The main pain point right now is that there is no web interface to do ad-hoc searches. I have given the search documentation to users but the adoption is quite low due to output formatting, and the ability to quickly get results from searches.
I've been looking for a browser extension that will allow them to put in the search information, and get back the JSon response parsed. I have been using JSONView for FireFox / Chrome, but have not found a plugin that will allow somebody to issue a GET request, and retrive the response parsed by JSONView. Example.
