Someone who is good at query design I want to talk about username autocomplete that I'm working on.

@Gargron Isn't it first about how you build the indexer? Not an expert here, but I've had to write a few queries and the other back-end guy often has needed to tweak our index to support different query behavior.


@alex First you need the query, then you need an index to support that query. I have an index and a query I just want a 2nd opinion.

@Gargron It looks like my project's autocomplete mixes up a wildcard search under 3 chars, then uses a bool.must claus matching the name.
