Typesense looks like a very interesting project, grats to the team here!
One small question from my side: Does typesense support facets with range?
For example counters for documents with posted date (yesterday, three days ago, last week, all time).
Thanks in advance,
Typesense does not support facets with ranges like you describe, for timestamps. But we’re working on adding support ranges with numbers: https://github.com/typesense/typesense/issues/386
