    Hi all, I’m new to web development and I’d like to build a toy web app with a text-search-as-you-type feature. I’m only considering free and open source solutions. To give you a better idea of what I’m trying to do, let’s imagine I’m working with a movie database where users can search for a film by title and they should be able to see the best matches as they type their queries. There will be a few million rows to search through and this data will be structured (it fits nicely into a relational DB). So far I’ve considered a number of options such as Elasticsearch which may be an overkill here, MongoDB which I believe also has this functionality but there is no need for a noSQL DB otherwise and I’ve considered a basic PostgreSQL too. Before I go too deep into Elasticsearch, MongoDB or other solutions I thought I’d ask you guys whether these tools are even right for me, so if you have experience implementing something of this nature then I’d love to hear from you. Many thanks! – by hq overview de1pher – –
