I want to download hacker news posts and support instant search on top of it. I saw that there was one such database before...but downloading is disabled now.

Do hacker news TOS even allow downloading and making a copy of the database?

Why dont you use http://www.hnsearch.com/

I guess if you really want to you can use their API to download posts.

they're out there.. just a matter of convincing someone to give u a copy...opendata/easily downloadable wise i high doubt it other than for specific terms/posts/people
