Setting Up API for Nonprofit Search

In this meeting, the State Changers discuss setting up an API to query nonprofit data and achieve desired search results. Echo raises the challenge of adding filters and not knowing how to set up the API. They start by creating an endpoint called "search nonprofits" and discuss using the "mission" field as the first filter. They run some tests and encounter issues with the API, but then realize they already have the endpoint set up. They explore indexing the search fields for better search functionality and see positive results. The State Changers conclude that using the index as a starting point will be efficient, even though the data is considered "dirty". They discuss adding pagination and continue with other CSS-related issues. Overall, the meeting provides valuable insights and progress on setting up the API and improving search functionality for nonprofits.
