Hi - I’m wondering if it’s possible to support complex queries directly in the search bar.
The experience I’d like to build would be a hybrid between free-text search and some sort of DSL to support complex queries. If necessary, the user could type some command (e.g. “[query]”) to indicate that they wish to use the DSL.
So if it were a search engine for books, the user might type “Harry Potter” or “[query] category:fiction num_pages>200”.
Obviously your service looks wonderful for the free-text search. And it seems that the plumbing is there for the more complex queries via attributes/filters/facets. But I can’t find an example where that complexity is exposed directly in the search bar.
Is this possible with Algolia?
