This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • Sonar - Write Clean C++ Code. Always.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • manticoresearch

    Easy to use open source fast database for search | Good alternative to Elasticsearch now | Drop-in replacement for E in the ELK soon

    In May 2017 we made a fork of Sphinxsearch 2.3.2, which we called Manticore Search. Below you will find a brief report on Manticore Search as a fork of Sphinx and our achievements since then.

  • docker

    Official docker for Manticore Search (by manticoresoftware)

    We released and are maintaining the official docker image for Manticore Search. You can now run Manticore in seconds anywhere as long as there's docker.

  • InfluxDB

    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.

  • icu

    The home of the ICU project source code.

  • manticoresearch-php

    Official PHP client for Manticore Search

    Even easier than using the JSON over HTTP is to to use a client for a specific programming language your application is written in. We've implemented new clients for php, python, java, javascript, elixir, go. Most of them are based on the new JSON interface and their code is generated automatically, allowing us to add new features to the clients much faster.

  • columnar

    Manticore Columnar Library

    We already have a beta version ready and here are some first results comparing Manticore Columnar Library + Manticore Search vs Elasticsearch on the same dataset as above (excluding full-text queries, i.e. mostly grouping queries):

  • Sonar

    Write Clean C++ Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean C++ code every time. With over 550 unique rules to find C++ bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
