Im using react-instantsearch v.6 and I have gotten a feature request that I am not sure is possible to implement?
I want to achieve below:
Say that my index contains movies and each movie have a duration-property (some numeric value, maybe in seconds). When the user makes a search or filter on movies I wish to display the sum of the duration for the movies that matches the search in the index. Since the data is paginated im wondering if this aggregation/sum feature is possible to implement with algolia?
A backup idea I have is to build an endpoint that browses the entire index with the user input (search, filter etc) and make the calculation myself. However, this would not be ideal since I have to do this on demand by the user (i.e build some type of button that does this processing since I do not wish to browse the entire index on every search)
