Great search is an essential feature that all of the best applications share. In fact, it is so common that people have come to expect it on every site and application they use. However, unlike YouTube and Facebook, most of us don't have the time or resources to build a fully-functional search engine from scratch. This doesn't mean our websites and applications can't have great search though!
With the help of Algolia, we can implement efficient, flexible, and insightful search in our own applications while keeping time and monetary costs to a minimum.
In this project, you will learn how to build a smart search form from scratch using Algolia. We'll store our searchable data in an index and build a simple NodeJS application that queries it through the Algolia API.
More specifically, you will be able to:
- Setup an index in Algolia using the Algolia UI
