Question

Supporting PGroonga extension for PostgreSQL (Managed service)

Our server heavily relies on PGroonga for various text search capabilities. We wanted to move to DigitalOcean and use the Managed service

However, we’ve reviewed the supported extensions and it seems this extension is not supported.

Is there any possibility to enable this extension ? It’s a real issue for us, and I assume for many more that rely on the Groonga project.

Hey,

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

I’ve also gone ahead and upvoted this!

In the meantime, an alternative solution here might be using a self-managed cluster instead installed on a Droplet:

Hope that helps!
