Requires Craft 2.5+, running php 5.5.9+
Following this quick guide you'll be up and running in less than 15 minutes. There are just 4 steps.
Search Plus is just a standard Craft plugin. Drop in the
searchplus folder, install via the CP > Plugins page and you're done.
If you've not already got an account with Algolia, you'll need to sign up here : . There's a 15 day unlimited trial option. That's perfect for testing out things.
Once you've got an account, get your Algolia API Credentials, add them to Search Plus via the CP settings page.
Algolia is based around the concept of Indexes. An index can be just a section of content.
Setting up our indexes is easy. It's all done through the Craft CP, where we just need to pick the content we want searchable, and how that content is mapped to something understandable by Algolia.
Great! All the content is in Algolia. Now we just need to actually expose it for the users.
This Quickstart covers the basic setup flow, but there's no need to stop there. Algolia enables you to have all sorts of faceted search, multiple index searches, geo-aware search, custom content mappings and so much more!
You can even search content that's completely external to Craft. As long as it's available in the index, you can work with it. The sky's the limit.
Search Plus is in active development, so if you have a requirement that's not covered in this documentation please get in touch today!
