InstantSearch / React / V6 / Guides / Overview

This version of React InstantSearch has been deprecated in favor of the latest version of React InstantSearch.

Each UI template comes with a set of functional blocks (“components”) and a demo site consisting of pages created with those components. For example, the Ecommerce UI template’s demo site has:

  • A home page
  • Product listing pages
  • Product detail pages.

These pre-packaged components are designed to be as independent as possible, so you can choose the ones you’re interested in. They’re typically composed of InstantSearch widgets, Autocomplete plugins, and non-Algolia components.

The Ecommerce UI template components are fully responsive, and all components are optimized to render well on both mobile and desktop devices.
