Search options for 2019 NodeBB

  • Community Rep

    My google-fu may be lame. And the stuff I am "hitting" on this fairly dated. Yes, I am aware that "it depends", but generally speaking, with respect to NodeBB Today, I would appreciate any status updates regarding use of:

    1. Elasticsearch
    2. Solr
    3. nodebb-plugin-dbsearch

    TIA-- o/

    Dbsearch is the recommendation, elasticsearch is third-party and should still work. Solr might be outdated but should also still work.

    Thank, Julian. I ran into some older posts bringing up issues with each. All other things being equal, and they never are, would you please elaborate a bit on strengths/weaknesses of dbsearch compared to the other two? Might be useful to others since many already have some familiarity with the latter two. Provides a bit of a yardstick, so to speak. Maybe I am trying to ask what up to date dbsearch lacks that may drive folks to use solr or elastic?

    This is what we are using now. We used to use Solr but it had issues and we came back.
