Deploy and try Meilisearch in 3 steps - 30 seconds ⏱

MeiliSearch is a powerful, fast, open-source, easy to use, and deploy search engine. Both searching and indexing are highly customizable. Features such as typo-tolerance, filters, and synonyms are provided out-of-the-box. Meilisearch is a great Elasticsearch and Algolia alternative.

Here is how to deploy it in 3 steps with Qovery.


Qovery is a PaaS to deploy your full-stack apps on your AWS or Digital Ocean account. Free hosting on Digital Ocean is provided for individual developers. This is what I am going to use for this quick tutorial

Deploy Meilisearch

1. Connect to Qovery

Connect to the Qovery web interface with your Github or Gitlab account.

2. Create a project

Give a name to your project.

3. Use Meilisearch template

Then select the Meilisearch template, click on "next", then click on "Deploy"
