I wanted to see what Elasticsearch queries Kibana ran.

  1. Have Pow & Homebrew set up correctly on your Mac.
  2. brew install elasticsearch # may involve having to brew install a java
  3. Download and decompress kibana from http://www.elasticsearch.org/overview/kibana/installation/
  4. cd kibana
  5. cp /usr/local/opt/elasticsearch/config/elasticsearch.yml .
  6. in the elasticsearch.yml:
    http.cors.enabled: true
    http.cors.allow-origin: http://kibana.dev
  7. ln -s . public
  8. ln -s `pwd` ~/.pow/kibana
  9. elasticsearch –config=elasticsearch.yml
  10. visit http://kibana.dev
