UI Libraries / Recommend / What Is Recommend?

Recommend is a JavaScript UI library for Algolia Recommend that lets you components to display recommendations on your site. Recommendations encourage users to discover more of your catalog based on what they’re already interested in.

Recommend exposes two UI components, one for each Algolia Recommend model:

Recommendations are an ideal complement to search experiences. If the user lands on an item which isn’t exactly what they were searching for, they can effortlessly jump to similar items. Conversely, when they find what they want, they can discover items that would complement their current selection.

Recommend lets you display such patterns anywhere you want: on your product page, in the search page with InstantSearch, in your autocomplete experience with Autocomplete, on a separate site, etc. Each Recommend component perfectly integrates with existing Algolia UI libraries, but also works as a standalone.
