Here is Quickwit featureset:

  • Simple CLI to manage your index and setup a distributed search cluster
  • Local and remote (S3-like storage) indexes
  • Stateless instances, add or remove instances without moving your data
  • Subsecond search on an object storage or any storage which provides bytes range queries
  • Full text search, including phrase query
  • Native support for time partitionning
  • Boolean queries: (michael AND jackson) OR "king of pop")
  • Mapping feature to define your schema and easily convert a json into a document to index
  • Support data types text, i64, f64, date, bytes and composite types object and array.

Quickwit v0.1 limitations

  • no support for file formats other than ndjson
  • no support for object storages not compatible with Amazon S3
  • no aggregations nor faceted search
  • no deletions (append mode only). One can only delete splits.
  • no split merging.
  • no indexing server
  • no concurrent indexing on the same index, as the object storage metastore would not allow it.
