Receiving new requirements often times quickly draws us to new specialized components in our tech stack. Sometimes we can still make due with what we've already got onboard.

The linked article illustrates some relatively simple techniques to build a full-text search engine based on PostgreSQL.

Integrated functionalities may not have the exact same feature set of specialized tools like Elastic- / Opensearch and others alike. However adding new tools to your tech stack will make working on your product a lot harder than just sticking to what you've already got. Even though it may not have the same final high-end potential, it may serve you well for an extremely long time.

Stick to what you've already got. Appreciate a low amount of components. Keep it simple.
