You guys have made it easy enough to start with (I find open APIs like “demo_ecommerce” to be really a painkiller), thanks!
I am using Algolia from a react-native (expo) client. So, I am able to use and customize a full-text search (except that using search text autocomplete (instead of instantSearch) seems like a good amount of work from the docs).
Anyway, my query is that how to use Algolia for a non-text search like:
User clicks on a category name -> fetch all products from this category -> show the facet filters and sort by options (same as in full-text search) -> user could filter or sort and Algolia responds
If it’s more appropriate to do from my backend, please elaborate a little (or point to an example/docs). If I am asking for something obvious (it could be, algolia is that good), please guide me to appropriate resources.
