Add support for LIKE operator to Tax_Query in Tainacan API #266

This issue comes from the discussion on #236

It sounds like a good idea to add support to do a LIKE search to the Tax_Query. It could be useful in many situations, giving more flexibility to filters and to an advanced search

This will be implemented using the approach tested here:

public function transform_meta_query_to_tax_query($args) {

Note that this change will be applied only to the Tainacan API and not to the WP_Query class in general

Added support in the API

Now the API supports LIKE as a value for the operator parameter in tax_query statements.


$request  = new \WP_REST_Request('GET', $this->namespace . '/collection/' . $collection->get_id() . '/items');
$attributes = [
	'taxquery' => [
			'taxonomy' => $taxonomy->get_db_identifier(),
			'operator' => 'LIKE',
			'terms' => 'water'
$response = $this->server->dispatch($request);

We have to make sure to add this to the api docs somehow
