I've long wanted to be able to index and search my own content -- to set up ad hoc "search engines" for different purposes as they come up, with sophisticated search strategies and customized, queryable metadata.

And when I heard about Tantivy, it immediately struck me as a potential vehicle for the search aspirations I'd harbored, as it was reportedly 1) fast, 2) powerful, and 3) written in Rust (all critical components in the Jonathan Strong "potential hobbyist project" rubric).

When it came time to set up the search engine for this site, I knew what I wanted: a Tantivy-based search engine, even if it was a tad bit overkill.
