Building search UIs

If you are building a web application, we recommend using one of our frontend search UI libraries instead of the API client directly.

For example, here is what Algolia’s Instant Search UI offers:

  • An out of the box, good-looking Search UI, easily customizable, with instant results and unlimited facets and filters, and many other configurable features
  • Better response time because the request does not need to go through your own servers, but instead is communicated directly to the Algolia servers from your end-users
  • As a consequence, your servers will be far less burdened by real-time searching activity

To get started with building search UIs, take a look at these tutorials:
