It’s no secret that Google is the search engine king these days and alternatives are mediocre but they are trying their best. I personally use DuckDuckGo but they are a combination of several search engines, not one built from the ground up.
I’m more of a front-end designer/developer but from what I’ve seen over the past year, something like Go or Rust is necessary for a sturdy foundation
and Postgres seems to be the most popular database at the moment (and a document-oriented database should be used). Specific technologies are probably unnecessary but I am interested in implementation details and reasons why certain things are done.
Anyone have insight into such a thing? High-level or in the weeds, I’m all ears.
