Nikos Vaggalis - Let PostgreSQL Pick An Index For You

 Supabase has launched Index Advisor, a Postgres extension for recommending indexes that improve query performance, easing the burden off the developer's shoulders.

Usually when you create your tables you'll also want to create indexes upon them for rapid retrieval. In order to do that you'll need a good understanding of your domain and how the code accesses data. RDBMs's are optimized to work declaratively; that is you tell them what you want without instructing them how to, like you do in the imperative programming model, letting it decide the best way of going about it.
