Marco - Fast, Simple & Powerful Search

2018-03-31

If you’re building an app or a website, and you need full-text search, you should check out Marco.

Marco is a full-text search and autocomplete service with sensible pricing.

Marco is dead simple to get started with. First, you send JSON documents. Then, you search them.

As an example, let’s insert a document into a new bucket called people:

PUT /people/1

{
    "name": "Mom",
    "age": 35,
    "about": "I like penguins."
}

Now let’s search for some word from our document:

GET /people/_search?q=penguin

{
    "took": "0.0017",
    "total": 1,
    "hits": [
        {
            "bucket": "people",
            "id": "1",
            "fields": {
                "name": "Mom",
                "age": 35,
                "about": "I like penguins."
            }
        }
    ]
}

Found it!


Why Marco?

Marco isn’t faster, more feature-packed or more reliable than Algolia. Marco doesn’t try to be those things. Marco wants to help small apps & websites who just need search, without emptying their pockets.
