Python bindings for Milli, the embeddable Rust-based search engine powering Meilisearch
Related: Meilisearch v1.0.0 released two days ago: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=34707727
I've been following these two libraries (Manticore and Meilisearch) very closely. Their simplicity, portability and performance gains over Elasticsearch are impressive.
Since two days ago, I am creating Python bindings for the core search engine of each of these two libraries, starting with https://github.com/AlexAltea/milli-py. Getting extreme performance, but as an embedded/self-contained packed (akin to SQLite).
Easy to use open source fast database for search | Good alternative to Elasticsearch now | Drop-in replacement for E in the ELK soon
I don't see anywhere where they claim that it's faster simply because it's written in C++. They do mention that they make use of C++ to add low level optimizations that make queries faster and the memory imprint smaller, but any claims about performance in the readme are linked to benchmarks to back up their claims
Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.
