Extending Instant Search widgets

Hi, I’m trying to implement Algolia on the Gatsby site that uses the Carbon Design System theme.
I’m hoping to preserve the look of the CDS search widgets.
Is it possible to add Algolia functionality to the Carbon components? Would I have to use js API for this?

Hey @artistanya24! I’m not too familiar with CDS, but it should definitely be possible.

When you initialize an InstantSearch widget, you’re able to specify a template. That template can accept custom components to render. It will probably be a bit more effort than using the defaults, but will give you full customization over your UI
