Has anyone managed to use the facet_by search parameter from the typesense-instantsearch-adapter ?
I've tried a few things but the requests contains an empty ("") facet_by parameter
I'm exploring the possibilities and my first intent was to get the facet_counts for a subset of faceted fields and display them somehow to the user as they type. I wasn't planning to refine the search so I thought refinementList wasn't for me yet
