Display search bar and results from Algolia Search

Hello everyone,
I have been spending many hours trying to set up Algolia for my website. It does work in the backend as I have instant results when I run Doctor.search(’‘Laura’) for example. However I have no idea and can’t find anywhere online how to display that info on a view?
Can someone please help? (I looked the Algolia website but couldn’t find anything about front end!)
Many thanks,

Hi there,

Thank you for using Algolia! We have multiple frontend libraries for you to get started, called InstantSearch. The InstantSearch library can help you to quickly get started with a frontend for your search.

Let me know if you have any questions!


Thanks @devin.beeuwkes ! I asked help and friend did it for me. I think the documentation is great, but sometimes missed some little key elements to help people who are occasional coders.
For example I had a simple_form which I used with PG search and it was working well. But I didn’t know I just had to replace and f.select line from that form with the relevant Algolia div to make it work… While it was quitesimple in the end.
Thanks again :slight_smile:
