I will be starting a test run of a paid add-on for Mastodon "Full-text search" on the servers I host.

You can read about it here: masto.host/full-text-search-ad

Any questions, please let me know.

@mastohost woah, 3€ per elastic instance is not that much!

@charlag I tried my best to make it affordable but Elastic requires a significant amount of resources. Still not 100% sure of the pricing but in a couple of months I will know if I messed up :)


@mastohost someone was making a patchset to search directly in DB but I have no idea if it was ever merged

@charlag never saw it on the release logs but I am not sure how well PostgreSQL plays with full text search. Still for now it looks like it Elastic is the way Mastodon dev is going with.

@mastohost @charlag pleroma has search in postgres, and it works, by some definition of working. fwiw
