A Deep And Fuzzy Dive Into Search

00General

Together with my team, I took a deep dive into the available fuzzy search approaches and algorithms for quite a while, in order to find a performant solution for the various projects ArangoSearch gets used for. 

Since the introduction of ArangoSearch back in 2018, many of our users have asked for fuzzy search support. We worked hard on getting this done, and the whole team is now excited to finally make fuzzy search available with the upcoming ArangoDB 3.7.

In the following, we will share our learnings and hope they are useful for you.

While we are still working on completing the feature, you can already try our retrieval engine in the Milestone of the upcoming ArangoDB 3.4 released today. Read more
