    Perhaps - what are the commit/accepted contribution rates for the two projects like at the moment? (I'm not saying that's a perfect metric, but it could provide some information)

    MeiliSearch[1] is an impressive-looking candidate. Perhaps two of the stronger innovations of Elasticsearch were horizontal scalability and the ability to pass documents to it over-the-network (basically, the ability to curl a JSON document and instantly have it be searchable -- and I'll admit/credit that Solr may have gotten there first with XML documents). Those two features make it easy to get started, and easy to scale up if needed (a common architect's concern).

    I've ran into the same "strip tags" issue. Having used ES before, that does sanitizing and stripping for you, at first I was dissapointed.

    However, after thinking about it more, I wrote up this issue[0] with some ideas and thoughts so I could implement it as PR or work around it.

    I ended up working around it, because that makes most sense: separation of concerns: meilisearch should indeed not get involved in stripping or fixing HTML as that i) ties Meili to HTML, ii) requires configuration and complexity to allow control and iii) adds features that become security-critical.

    Indeed, my solution is to sanitize, clean and strip HTML before sending into the index.

    I worked on my grenad library: a library used to sort, merge, write, and read key-value pairs, used in MeiliSearch for the new indexing system. I added a lot of documentation to the crate and done a lot of improvement by reducing the amount of copied memory when merging key-value pairs.
