are there any plans to implement sorting by distance in the near future?
Without this feature app search would be no candidate for us.
Check out our docs for proximity boosts: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/app-search/current/relevance-tuning-guide.html#relevance-tuning-guide-weights-and-boosts-boosts
It's not a literal "sort" where relevance score is completely ignored and results are sorted purely based on distance, but rather a "boost", meaning that distance (or proximity) is merely one factor in determining which results are shown first. If you tune the boost to be high enough, it could act like a pure sort.
Give it a try and let us know how it works for you.
