I wish Typesense cloud had free tier. 720h is not enough for me.
I want to try it out with my side projects, then if it works well, I will use typesense for our company projects.
I know it is hard for bootstrapping startups but I believe more devs will use typesense.

I hear you, and we would love to have a perpetual free tier, but ultimately that is something we can't support as a bootstrapped company. Also, it is pretty easy to run Typesense locally or on a cloud of your choice to verify how it works. We don't gate any feature at all in the open source version: so essentially it's free for all forms of exploration.
