  • Milli-py: Python bindings for Milli, an embeddable high-performance search engine
    4 projects | /r/Python | 13 Feb 2023
    The only other embeddable search engine I'm aware off, Whoosh, is brilliant but building the index was quite slow, and search performance degraded quite a lot as number of documents increase (performance is strictly a non-goal). Meilisearch was comparatively faster, I didn't like managing a server to get "just search" in my scripts and applications. However, their underlying engine Milli solves both issues I had, and all that was needed creating bindings for it.
  • Meilisearch v1.0 – the open-source Rust alternative to Algolia and Elasticsearch

    Is it really "just a single statically linked binary"?

    I'd love to use Meilisearch as you describe, but their so-called SDKs are just about for the search client, you still need the HTTP server listening on localhost.

    I would love to see something like SQLite based off Meilisearch (i.e. a fully selfcontained library like https://github.com/mchaput/whoosh). Do you know if such a thing exists?

  • Faster Full Text Search
    1 project | /r/django | 5 Jan 2023
    For our full text search, we used whoosh, which works pretty well for moderately big amount of data.
  • We upgraded an old, 3PB large, Elasticsearch cluster without downtime
    1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Nov 2022
    Nearly a decade ago (oh god) I converted some overdesigned five node ES mess to https://github.com/mchaput/whoosh. It's (obviously) not the fastest or anything, but it was more than good enough for low-dozens of GBs of mostly static data.

    Your best bet is to start using a proper search library rather than the simple loop with 'in' checks that you have now. A search lib will handle things like Unicode/ASCII similarities, removal of stop words, stemming, TF-IDF (and other) weighting, etc. and will be massively faster as well. Quite a few pages come up if you Google "python search engine", also Whoosh looks promising.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing query.cr and whoosh you can also consider the following projects:

soegen - Elasticsearch client library for crystal, similar to rubys stretcher gem

Elasticsearch - Free and Open, Distributed, RESTful Search Engine

query-builder - sql query builder library for crystal-lang

Search Engine Parser - Lightweight package to query popular search engines and scrape for result titles, links and descriptions

Whoosh

pysolr - Pysolr — Python Solr client

hermes - Datamapper like Crystal ORM and adapter for Elasticsearch

elasticsearch-dsl-py - High level Python client for Elasticsearch

lunr.js - A bit like Solr, but much smaller and not as bright

solrpy - Automatically exported from code.google.com/p/solrpy

minisearch - Tiny and powerful JavaScript full-text search engine for browser and Node
