Algolia Integration with GraphCMS

Last Saturday morning our whole team sat together with the goal of shipping a new feature. The internal hackathon included lots of new LOC, pizza and unhealthy drinks. The result is our brand new Algolia Integration.

Algolia Integration View

Algolia is a hosted full-text, numerical, and faceted search engine capable of delivering realtime results from the first keystroke. Algolia’s powerful API lets you quickly and seamlessly implement search within your websites and mobile applications. The search API powers billions of queries for thousands of companies every month, delivering relevant results in under 100ms anywhere in the world.

The Setup

Adding Algolia to your existing or new project is as simple as it can be. All you need is an Algolia account, an API Key and your Application ID. The detailed setup can be found in our documentation. You then choose which model and fields you want to have indexed - that's it for your set up. Now you are ready to integrate Algolia in your front end. See how to do that on the Getting Started Guide.

Sample Application

To celebrate the launch or our Algolia integration, our dev team put together a small demo application to showcase the convenience of Algolia.
