Elastic / Elastix / Tirexs

There's a similar package called Elastix, which provides similar functionality. I only found out about this package after I wrote Elastic and was using it in production; after first trialling tirexs -- and not finding its code very easy to understand.

It looks like the creator of Elastix and I have similar design ideals, so it really does come down to personal choice when deciding which library to use. I think Elastic has better documentation. Elastix has a Mapping API, but Elastic has a Scrolling API.

Choose your own adventure ;)
