  • 1.0 Is Released · OpenSearch
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-07-13
    As a maintainer of another open-source search project (https://github.com/typesense/typesense), this whole saga has left a pretty sour taste.

    At the end of the day, being truly committed to open source is difficult once you start feeling the revenue pressure. The very openness of the license that drives the growth of the project and the community in the early days becomes an albatross around your neck. Once you have raised a lot of money, there is tremendous pressure sooner or later to own the market and to justify the insane revenue multiples at which many companies are raising. It's a delicate path.

    If you set the expectations right, I think the Cloud market is large enough to accommodate several companies in most verticals. However, "growth at all cost" requires walking back on your ideals and promises.

    Typesense is a fast, typo-tolerant search engine for building delightful search experiences. It claims that it is an Easier-to-Use ElasticSearch Alternative & an Open Source Algolia Alternative.
  • An open source alternative to Algolia?! Yep. We've built one and it's called Typesense. Self-host or use our managed SaaS. No more per-search or per-record charges.

    Typesense + Instant Search UI
  • Show HN: Instantly search 1M Linux commit messages
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-13
    Hey everyone,

    I'm Jason and I work on Typesense (an opensource Algolia/ElasticSearch alternative): https://typesense.org.

    I recently learnt that the Linux Kernel I've used for the past 20 years crossed 1 Million commits and also turned 30 years old in 2021: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=27014732

    I've been on the lookout for interesting datasets to build search interfaces with and with the 1M Linux commits milestone, I figured it would be fun to index all the 1 million Linux commit messages in Typesense and build an instant-search + browsing interface on top of it, especially to find interesting tidbits from the commit messages.

    This site is the result of that effort, and a tribute (if I may) to all the hard work that has gone into a piece of software that powers a good chunk of the modern world and has personally been a bedrock for my journey into programming. Thank you Linux Kernel Team!

    If you find any interesting commit messages & search terms, let me know and I can add them to the highlights on the site.

  • Show HN: Building search engines with open source tech for $99
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-15
    We are building machine learning products for a fixed weekly fee. We saw that search engines are the most requested type of product.

    Nowadays, with https://streamlit.io/, https://typesense.org/, or http://jina.ai/ (which are open source) and some coding skills you can build state-of-the-art quality search engines. 10 years ago a team of engineers was required for this.

    Some examples,

    You can search documents: https://pinksearchengine.link/example_search.html (code here https://github.com/kstathou/vector_engine)

    You can search webpages: https://pinksearchengine.link/example_search_web.html (code here https://github.com/typesense/showcase-recipe-search)

    You can search images, using textual queries: https://pinksearchengine.link/example_search_images_with_tex... (code here https://github.com/vatsalsaglani/CLIPSemanticImageSearch)

  • Ask HN: What tangible benefits did you get from spending time on HN?
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-06
    I've been following HN for 10+ years, first as a lurker and then getting into the whole "build something people want" thing. Over the years, I've "launched" quite a few projects here. Some have failed, while others have succeeded far beyond my modest expectations. But in a pre Product Hunt era, launching on HN was the only way to get exposure to your product. Even today, for a number of highly technical projects, HN is the best place to get the word out.

    While HN crowd has a reputation of being too cynical at times (the most famous example being the original "Show HN Dropbox"), over time, pre-empting how the HN crowd will potentially react and what kind of criticism a project might attract has actually helped me improve the product before launch!

    > I mean one day you got traffic 100K on the website. Good. But just for one day.

    My latest project, Typesense, which is an open source instant search engine (https://github.com/typesense/typesense) literally found traction only after posting here on HN. Yes, it was a ~50K single day traffic, but it had a permanent impact on the baseline traffic. So nothing is as useless as it looks :)

    Apart from the value I've gotten out of all these Show HNs, there is an incredible amount of value in the comments on HN. In fact, I often just skip the main post and just skim through the comments. Also, unlike certain other forums, snarky/toxic comments are discourage and moderated.

    I've been thinking about doing office hours recently and this is just the motivation I needed to set it up! So thank you OP.

    Paranoid me is a little nervous about putting up a scheduling link publicly, but here goes: I work on Typesense [1], which is an open source alternative to Algolia and an easier to use alternative to ElasticSearch.
