What is Search API

A search API is way to build search without worrying about infrastructure. 

Building search via an API is a  three step process. Index your data, configure search relevance and build your UI. 

Algolia provides developer tools for all three steps. Index via client libraries, configure relevance in dashboard and build UI using JS libraries.

APIs for developers, ROI for the business


Startup with pre-built libraries for instantsearch.js, autocomplete.js or recommend.js - or find a mix that works with your frontend.
