Hi. I’m trying to create a rating facet, the same one as in example https://react-instantsearch.netlify.app/examples/media/ using node js as a server. The instant search library has a ratingMenu widget, that can provide something that I need. So, my question is: Is it possible to create the rating facet with ‘and Up’ behavior without instant search?
The frontend InstantSearch libraries are indeed meant to make your life easier. The pre-built widgets can be customized if you need additional customizations, for example:
- base rating widget: https://www.algolia.com/doc/api-reference/widgets/rating-menu/angular/
- connect rating widget if you need a higher order component: https://www.algolia.com/doc/api-reference/widgets/rating-menu/js/#connector
- complete custom widget built yourself: https://www.algolia.com/doc/guides/building-search-ui/what-is-instantsearch/js/#creating-custom-widgets
They are all built on InstantSearch.
