Opengrok vs Bit Bucket Elastic Search

We are using Opengrok and more recently Bit Bucket Elastic Search. Elastic Search seems to be the emerging search technology. However, I think Opengrok is far better. The main advantage I see is that it marks up the results. You can click on any variable/class/method in the results, just like you would in an IDE.

They both have cryptic search syntax, that I can live with.

There is quite a bit of back end work to keep Opengrok running - jenkins jobs to run indexing etc. We would like to have just one search tool... but for the moment Opengrok is simply better.

Hyperlinking within the UI between files would be great.
