Algolia’s advanced search capabilities pair seamlessly with iOS or Android Apps when using FlutterFlow. App development and search design have never been easier, more enjoyable, or more effective while delivering powerful results.

Flutter is a framework for building cross-platform native mobile and web apps. Unlike similar technologies, Flutter doesn’t produce components like a UIKit framework on iOS to display and interact with content. Instead, it compiles directly to machine code for ARM and Intel chip sets and employs Java Script to enable web application and functionality.

FlutterFlow is a low-code, visual application developer tool that lets users build Flutter apps quickly and efficiently. Low-code application platforms like FlutterFlow allow developers to generate new software applications faster. This shortens the application development cycle and minimizes the amount of hand coding required.

Integration of FlutterFlow with Algolia search makes it much easier to create mobile and web applications with searchable content. FlutterFlow provides a dynamic display of Algolia search results within your app that enables fast and accurate searches of complex data and records. Developers can build applications such as a sophisticated social network or a user-friendly ecommerce platform using FlutterFlow’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface with Algolia’s search integration.

This presentation was originally shared at Algolia DevCon. 

Algolia FlutterFlow Integration: How it’s done in just a few simple steps

FlutterFlow design follows a unique software philosophy. Its visual layer relies on low abstraction. This gives developers greater control over component details and system instructions. As a result, building native applications and integrating Algolia can be done with a high level of precision.

Once you’ve configured Algolia and Firebase, you can integrate Algolia search into the FlutterFlow app.

With the full functionality of Algolia’s powerful search technology is integrated into your app, end users see an enhanced and dynamic display, bringing the search experience to life. The result? End users see an enhanced and dynamic display, bringing the search experience to life.

Adding advanced Algolia features

Very early on in their lifecycle, FlutterFlow had Algolia in mind as the preeminent technology to enable search on applications developed on their platform. Flutterflow has recently upgraded to work with Algolia’s latest, most powerful search capabilities.

flutterflow and algolia

FlutterFlow has a custom code module that allows developers to enable a host of additional Algolia Search features. By implementing Algolia’s PubDev package, developers can integrate greater functionality that allows for advanced filter capabilities and faceting as well as improved search and discovery. This allows the app to execute logics based on specific user actions and requests. It also lets the app implement custom code that is split up into functions, widgets, and actions.

Additionally, FlutterFlow’s custom action and action flow editor let you set up and define a specific logic. When a user clicks on an icon in the app the logic is seamlessly executed.

Algolia Search and FlutterFlow are two powerful technologies that complement one another. FlutterFlow’s ability to export full source code provides the flexibility to continue developing applications outside of the platform. While Algolia’s search expertise brings fast and efficient search and data retrieval capabilities, breathing life and dynamism to the end user’s app experience.
