I’ve finally manage to build an MVP based on Algolia’as magic !
The goal was to allow some users to instantiate an index without having to do anything more than writing their e-commerce URL in an input. Then a crawler start and the magic happens
Works only for :
But Prestashop and Magento will arrive, I’m sure of it !
Shout out to the site’s I’ve crawled a lot to test
"Force reindex" to see the whole process if you’re curious):
What’s next :
Listen and adapt to your feedback
Fine tunes the indices
Add a debug mode
Add a more visual progress bar
Update Algolia libraries
Add a function to compare with native search
Add Color, Size etc. in Object
Add more CMS
Remove first level of categories when generic (shops, collections etc…)
Sky is the limit…
P.S: (Too) many code was made during (too) late hours, please don’t be too harsh
P.S-2 : I’ve used a few Algolia design element, please tell me if that’s a problem!
