Image search using Algolia

Hi There
We are finding Algolia to be very useful for our search. In line with improving that, we were thinking of including an image search. For each image we have phash values. We know that we could consider phash as an integer and index it by algolia. But if we could write a function for comparing phashes based on hamming distance then it would be very efficient for us.
Is there any way currently to do this?

Thanks.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, Algolia is a text based search engine (for now). So there is no way to have a custom comparing function for some attributes.

Best,

Hi Rcs
Thanks for the quick response.
