React InstantSearch

React InstantSearch is a library for building blazing fast search-as-you-type search UIs with Algolia.

Version Build Status License Downloads

React InstantSearch is a React library that lets you create an instant-search result experience using Algolia’s search API. It is part of the InstantSearch family:

React InstantSearch | InstantSearch.js | Angular InstantSearch | Vue InstantSearch | InstantSearch Android | InstantSearch iOS


You should be using React InstantSearch if you want to:

  • Design search experiences with best practices
  • Customize your components at will
  • Follow React principles


React InstantSearch is available on the npm registry. It relies on algoliasearch to communicate with Algolia APIs.

yarn add react-instantsearch-dom algoliasearch
# or
npm install react-instantsearch-dom algoliasearch

Getting started

Using React InstantSearch is as simple as adding these components to your app:

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import algoliasearch from 'algoliasearch/lite';
import { InstantSearch, SearchBox, Hits } from 'react-instantsearch-dom';

const searchClient = algoliasearch(

const App = () => (
    <SearchBox />
    <Hits />
