The username is - simeonpanda.
I have tested searching for term “panda” and I don’t get any hits, is there a way for typesense to get a match like that?
With people using their fullnames as their usernames, I see this happening all the time (eg. people search ronaldo for cristianoronaldo and etc.)
I guess I can add additional displayName field and that should help, but just wondering.
Here is an example of what instagram returns.
