Chris Overstreet just published a fantastic article in the Cosmic JS Community demonstrating how to sync Algolia with Cosmic JS to provide fast and powerful search functionality for projects. He built an example application using React, Redux and Node.js that utilizes Cosmic JS Webhooks to integrate with Algolia to power search for the application.

In this blog Iโ€™ll install the Starter Store App in a few short commands.๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿš€โšก๏ธ

Connecting Algolia to Cosmic JS for Awesome Search Functionality

Step 1: Create a New Bucket

Step 2: Install the Starter Store App

Install via the Cosmic JS CLIย 
Run the following code, one line at a time, in your preferred command line tool. Go to the Cosmic CLI NPM page for more info.

Please note that this is not a turn-key solution for an e-commerce site. It is missing some features that you would need (like payment processing). If youโ€™re interested in adding search to your Cosmic JS project, though, check out the source code. This could be a great starting point for your project!

Cosmic JS is empowering blended teams of developers and non-technical editors to build apps faster and manage content more nimbly on a light-weight stack. Installing example applications is a great way to prototype and get familiarized with easy content modeling examples within your Bucket Dashboard.
