I have a certain use case where I have an infinite scroll of post that I can filter by Topics and order by Date or Most Liked.
In the future I’ll have a search bar to allow search for posts.
But for now it’s only the list of post that I can filter and order by.
I was thinking that I could build my wall with filters and sorting options by using InstantSearch.
But, I’m not sure that when I would add the search feature I would be able to do the behavior that I want.
For example, when a user filter the main wall and sort, and then start a search I don’t want that the wall refine by what the user start to type. I would like something like an autocomplete and the if he hit “enter” or the search button, the he is redirected to a result page where all the refine could happen.
The more I dive into algolia, the more I think I shouldn’t be using the index to create my main wall. And start using Algolia only when I would have a search bar and build my result page with it.
Could you help me to wrap my mind around this use case please
Thank you !
