Hi everyone,

I'm one of the makers of ParadeDB. We create the Postgres extension pg_search (formerly known as pg_bm25), which adds Elasticsearch-level full-text search to Postgres. You can read more here:

We've seen asked on the Django forums (see here: for support by Django for the pg_search BM25 index.

I'm not familiar with Django deeply-enough to know where to start, but we'd love to partner up and build this feature together. Let us know!

Thank you for your report.

I don't think that Django can commit to providing abstractions for all Postgres extensions out there, the good news though is that it provides a tons of entry points for custom fields, migration operations, indices, and lookups to be created.

I'd suggest you look into maintaining your own third-party applications that provides the adequate abstraction to leverage your commercial offering. That's what vendors like Cockroachdb and other extensions maintainer do.
