Hello, thx for developing typesense it is much fun so far. But currently in have the strange situation that when i index content in a collection, it looks like it was done, no errors, but the collection stays empty. Any idea how i can get to it?

Can you check the content of the import response? I think some fields were not confirming to the schema so were likely ignored.

During import some documents can succeed, while others can fail. So we handle failure at a per document level.

since there is no trace, try/except does not help me. But i guess i have to do a single creation to see the problem then, right. Now i'm doing batch import which was working so far.

Just print the response of the import call, each line will contain the status of that particular document's import status.
