It’s recommended to use the Kotlin API client, which is better suited for Android development.

Building search interfaces

If you’re building a web application, it’s recommended to use one of Algolia’s front-end search UI libraries instead of using the API client directly.

Algolia’s InstantSearch UI libraries offer an out of the box, good-looking and customizable search UI with instant results, unlimited facets and filters, and more configurable features. By using InstantSearch, you get better response times, because the requests go directly from your end users to the Algolia servers. This also lowers the burden on your servers from real-time search activity.
