Access API Directly

To access the API directly, you may need to interact with Algolia’s PHP client.

The Algolia PHP client lets you use Algolia’s features in the most customizable way possible.

Please head over to Algolia’s PHP client documentation to find the available methods and features.

If your access the Algolia’s PHP client directly, perform a composer require algolia/algoliasearch-client-php when there’s a new major release to make sure there are no breaking changes.
