Hello, is it possible to add a function to this plugin? Instead of having to send thousands of individual records, it would be great to batch them by hundreds or a thousand.

Algolia - Add Object List

Please allow us to check if that is possible here and revert with an update ASAP.

Hello, @rosshelton

In order to better understand your request, can you please let us know how exactly you want to batch data - by attribute or by records?
There are 2 possibilities:

We are looking to hearing from you soon.

I want to be able to send a list of records to Algolia for creation. Currently you plugin only allows one record creation at a time. I need the ability to send a larger JSON lists of objects to be created. If I was to use the bubble backend API one at a time it would take hours to send each object one at at time. Below is a link to Algolia’s discussing sending batches to their API.

" Sending records in batches#

Algolia lets you send one or more records in a single API call, or batch records. You can batch your indexing operations via the API or the dashboard.

For optimal indexing performance, you should send your records in batches. An ideal batch size is ~10 MB, which represents between 1,000 or 10,000 records depending on the average record size.

Batching has several benefits: it reduces network calls and speeds up indexing. Users with lots of records see the most significant impact on performance, but every Algolia user should batch indexing operations whenever possible.

Batching doesn’t change how Algolia counts indexing operations. Every indexing operation adds to your count. If you send several records, each of them still counts as one operation."

Something like the code below.

const Algolia = require(‘algoliasearch’);

const client = Algolia(process.env.ALGOLIA_APP_ID, process.env.ALGOLIA_API_KEY);
const index = client.initIndex(‘you_index_name’);

const objects = [
{objectID: ‘1’, name: ‘John’, age: 26},
{objectID: ‘2’, name: ‘Jane’, age: 29},
{objectID: ‘3’, name: ‘Jack’, age: 33}
]

return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
index.saveObjects(objects, (err, content) => {
if (err) reject(err)
resolve({
statusCode: 200,
body: content
})
})
})

Hello, @rosshelton

We will discuss whether that is possible with our plugin right now. We will revert to you with an update at the nearest time.

Hi may I ask why I cannot retreat values as shown? The Algolia element cannot be invisible?

If it’s the API keys setup issue, why the naming is so different with Algolia’s official names???

Also, The docs are not helpful at all as there is no plugin content (elements, data calls and etc) explanation.

Hello, @Rangduju
Thanks for yourquestion.

We need to highlight that we have pretty detailed documentation for this plugin. Under the Bubble Setup and Usage section, we have quite a detailed list of plugin content described:

We named all the fields according to some rules, however, we have a lot of information about using all the keys.
For example, you can quickly check our free course for the setup of the Algolia plugin (The second lesson shows how to set up API keys) :

In order to help you and investigate the root cause of the issue and how to fix it, please share with us as many details as possible about your current setup of Algolia and the plugin itself.

We are looking to hearing from you soon.
Best regards,

Hello,

I wanted to check in and see if you think this is possible? If not, I will start looking to build other options.

Thanks!

Thanks for pointing out, I am all set with my appology to this great plugin! The only thing wrong is “docs font too small that could be barely seen”.

One special tip for others who got this error to use “:formatted-as-JSON-safe” method mentioned in this post.

Raw error: {"message":"lexical error: invalid character inside string. Around '�醒)。'","status":400}

Just to remember to remove quotations as the method already comes with it.
