Unified InstantSearch for Ecommerce

A ready-to-use, fully functional Search & Discovery UI on top of InstantSearch

Build your Ecommerce Search & Discovery experience in no time using this framework-agnostic prebuilt UI that offers out-of-the-box a robust as-you-type InstantSearch experience, while retaining the customizability of Algolia InstantSearch.

Designed to accelerate your Algolia integration, this mobile-optimised UI has been created to best fit any website UI via its full page overlay and offers a direct access to the following Algolia key features:

  • Typo proof as-you-type InstantSearch experience
  • Query Suggestions
  • Advanced Analytics with A/B testing
  • Dynamic Re-ranking
  • Personalization
  • Merchandising capabilities, including banners via Rules

On the frontend side, once compiled, the total package weighs under 300kb and runs on any existing website, regardless of the framework used (see Browser support). Its impact on Core Vitals is almost transparent.
