Welcome to ZincSearch

Why ZincSearch

ZincSearch was started since there was no search engine that was available that could serve my needs.

While Elasticsearch is a very good product, it is complex and requires lots of resources and is more than a decade old. I built ZincSearch so it becomes easier for folks to use full text search indexing without doing a lot of work.

  5. Compatibility with Elasticsearch DSL for querying data. Check /es endpoints (This is work in progress. If somerthing does not work, let us know by raising a github issue)
  6. Out of the box authentication
  7. Schema less - No need to define schema upfront and different documents in the same index can have different fields.
