When browsing through items, it’s always good to give the user the option to sort his results by a certain attribute such as price. This can easily be done by using InstantSearch.
Let’s say you have a product page and you have 2 indices: your main index
products and your products sorted by price
products_price_asc (refer to our Sorting guide to see how this is done). We will use the power of multi-indexing in order to achieve this.
AppDelegate.swift, when initializing InstantSearch, add the indices:
1 2 3 4 5 let searcherIds: [SearcherId] = [ SearcherId.init(index: "products"), SearcherId.init(index: "products_price_asc") ] InstantSearch.shared.configure(appID: ALGOLIA_APP_ID, apiKey: ALGOLIA_API_KEY, searcherIds: searcherIds)
Then, when the user decides to sort some
hitsTableView for example, do the following:
1 2 hitsTableView.index = "products_price_asc" InstantSearch.shared.register(widget: hitsTableView, doSearch: true)
