Running MeiliSearch in a Lambda

A couple findings:

  • You can cross-compile meilisearch/meilisearch for the netlify lambda environment using cargo build --target x86_64-unknown-linux-musl
  • You can execute one actix web route using the test infrastructure
  • You can drop a full my-data.ms/ into the right location and Meilisearch will pick it up and use it.

in meilisearch-http there is a binary at src/main.rs. If we clone that into src/lambda.rs and make a couple changes, we can fake a single request to the actix app.
