Infinite Scroll Demo

This is a sample project implementing a full page search with infinite scroll in results using Algolia.

Infinite Scroll

You can try the live demo or follow the guide to build your own.


  • Full-JavaScript/frontend implementation based on instantsearch.js
  • Results page refreshed as you type
  • Hits
  • Facets
  • Pagination
  • Relevant results from the first keystroke
  • Typo-tolerance
  • Multiple sort orders
  • By Relevance
  • By Highest Price
  • By Lowest Price
  • Backup search parameters in the URL


Build the project

To build the application, you need NPM which comes with Node.js.

In the command line do:

  • yarn
  • yarn start

Then open your browser and go to http://localhost:8080.

We've included some credentials in the code allowing you to test the demo without any Algolia account.

Import the data on your Algolia account

If you want to replicate this demo using your own Algolia credentials, you can use the tasks/import.js script to send the data and configure the indices.

$ ./import.js YourApplicationID YourAPIKey YourIndexName

Then, you'll need to replace the demo credentials with your own:

  • in src/js/app.js, set your own APPLICATION_ID instead of "latency" (which is our demo APPLICATION_ID),
  • in src/js/app.js, set your own SEARCH_ONLY_API_KEY instead of "6be0576ff61c053d5f9a3225e2a90f76",
  • in src/js/app.js, set your own index name instead of "instant_search"
