My use-case is as follows:
I have a category facet that I want to promote specific results in. For example, search in category “t-shirts” (without a text query) should return t-shirts with a few promoted items on top in a specific order.
I’m aware of sorting the results but using index replicas but I’m hoping for a more straight forward solution than creating 80+ replicas for each category.
Another solution I thought about is getting results from Algolia but order from the site API but it would impact the performance of the search.
Is there any other way I can approach this issue?
