Full-text search in Django with PostgreSQL
I have worked in different projects where I used two of the most currently famous Lucene-based full-text search software (Elasticsearch or Solr). I’m going to speak about the full-text search in general and I want to show the problems I encountered implementing it in the past. Afterwards, I’m going to talk about the PostgreSQL full-text search and present the django.contrib.potgres.search module, with a demo with real world data. Finally, I’m going to show how we use and test it in an Use Case project.
