Issues with Typesense Search Results and Upcoming Enhancements

TLDR Stefan encountered problems with Typesense search results. Kishore Nallan recently refracted the text matching engine to improve this issue, highlighted upcoming features in their 0.23.0 release, and offered Dan a RC test run. Upgrades were also made on Typesense Cloud UI by Jason.

Sometimes typesense is giving really weird result and is hard to use:
If I search for the title of the exact title of the product: " Ultra Sheer ® Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70" it's found perfectly [image 1]
If I search for this query: "neutrogena ultra sheer dry-touch sunscreen spf 70". [image 2] It doesn't even appear anywhere
Also my config [image 3], if I put twice the weight on brand, why would the first result for [image 2] be: "brand: Pathridge54"

Stefan I know this is such an old thread, but i just got around to refactoring the text matching engine to handle queries with words that span across multiple fields out of the box without requiring a separated "concatenated" field index.

This is available on 0.23.0.rc53 and such cross field matching queries should also be much faster now.

And once this release ships, hopefully nested fields 😉

Yes, highlight features:

- in-place schema changes (adding/removing fields without recreating collection)

Kishore Nallan excited as well for this release - is there any chance of being able to take this RC for a spin on cloud?

the cloud UI doesn’t support text sorting yet?

Ah yes, we haven't added support for it yet in Typesense Cloud, since the feature is in an RC build. But it's only a UI limitation. The API itself should support string sorting. We'll add the UI this coming week.
