Does Algolia supports sorting Result title by Ascending and Descending order at Query time

Algolia sorting works nice at indexing time. In my current project we have need to integrate Algolia sorting at Query time.

Can someone suggest if Algolia sorting works at query time?

The answer is kinda, not really. If you use replica indices (Manage your indices | Algolia) then you can sort your items as you want in the replica. Then you can use the sortBy widget to resort your results with the replica: sortBy | InstantSearch.js | Algolia

Algolia orders items at index time, not at query time. But you can use replicas to maintain multiple sort orders.

I’ve been playing with DynamicWidgets, and there may be some opportunities to do client side sort with those tools. However, on the other hand, maybe not given all the internals of instantsearch. I haven’t gone all the way down the rabbit hole on that yet.
