Was looking for an Algolia alternative since Algolia is turning out to be quite expensive for us. Is there a means of implementing Typesense on Wordpress (for a non techie) via a Plugin at the moment? The code I downloaded on github seems to be a version of the webdevstudios Algolia plugin, or does the same plugin need to be used for Typesense as well?
I think Typesense has mostly been designed to be easy to switch to, for example also with the instantsearch adapter. Instantsearch is another Algolia initiative but typesense can be used with it via their own adapter.
Jason - Would you know anybody who has used it already? Or any other possible way to implement Typesense on Wordpress that you know of?
