There is this person called Josh i guess, he developed algolia search extension for discourse. Looks like developing extension for them is part of expanding their footprint. he is also friendly and shared his email contact details
we have a flarum algolia search extension which is compatible with old flarum. Could someone contact him and request fixing algolia search extension?
Why would he will do it?
He may fix it for us because it will be a befit for their organization, if there is a algolia search for flarum it will definitely make revenue for them. If he is not interested but atleast he will take this information to their team.
Why don't you ask him?
Due to lack of English skills i may not ask him in a polite manner.
Why can't others devs fix this?
No idea, obviously it will cost dev efforts 💰
Not that everyone is commercial here but other devs are busy with many other tasks. (Contributions)
Few important notes he mentioned about the algolia pricing
It depends on how much data you have. If you have less than 1k posts, you should fit into Algolia’s free Community Plan, which gives you 10k records. A good rule of thumb is that you’ll need 10 Algolia records for each post, as posts are split up into-paragraph size chunks for optimum relevance and speed. Still, YMMV. If you’d like to use the plugin but have concerns about the cost, just send me an email and I’ll see what we can do. If you are an open source project or a non-profit, you may quality for higher limits, just fill out this form and mention Discourse.
