Discussion on: What search engines have you used in your apps?

I've worked at Algolia and am obviously biased but sold on the product. I use it when I need extensive search features and great performance on large datasets.
But 9 out of 10 times, I use Fuse.js because of its very limited footprint as an independent package, no infrastructure needed. Also, it can be executed on the back-end if you have performance limitations on the front-end.
