Hello Guix :),
Sorry for the late followup :/

Hope your summer is going well!

I'm sending this email to follow up on the search functionality for packages.
With Chris's help I managed to make some changes that make the query for searching packages within the Guix Data Service faster.
I don't know if the search is fast enough to be included on the Guix website, but I thought it would be good to share.

Search packages page in the test version of the website that Chris deployed:

If you'd want to have a look at the code changes: this is the commit where the changes start.

Looking forward to your feedback!

Best regards,

To be clear, Varnish is not a replacement for nginx (it does not even
speak HTTPS), the typical deployment is nginx -> Varnish -> backend.  It
introduces another "hop" though.

I'm not sure if it's worth the added complexity here, just thought I'd
mention it.  It's a programming language for caching/proxying logic.
