re: Algolia indexing with Serverless Webhooks VIEW POST


Nice post Martyn! I like the simplicity and your high-level overview of the Serverless framework. What are you using Algolia for in most cases?


Thanks Kyle! I use it for anything that I might want to search or have users search, at some point. I am a little biased because I worked there up until recently, but I used it before I joined and I’ll definitely use it after. Because you can store JSON the same way you would with something like MongoDB I find it makes a good back up for lower volume DB transactions, especially if you would want that data to be searchable later on. My everyday use case is to store the content of web pages in it, that then allows me to make said site searchable on hundreds of different criteria.
