Algolia Search

Add Algolia search to your Gatsby site.


npm i @reflexjs/gatsby-plugin-search-algolia


Create an account on Algolia.

Go to API keys and copy the following key to a .env file.

// .env
ALGOLIA_APP_ID = <--- Application ID
ALGOLIA_SEARCH_KEY = <--- Search-Only API key
ALGOLIA_ADMIN_KEY = <--- Admin API key
ALGOLIA_INDEX_NAME = <--- Index name

Configure @reflexjs/gatsby-plugin-search-algolia as follows:

// gatsby-config.js
module.exports = {
  siteMetadata: {
    title: "Reflex",
  plugins: [
      resolve: `@reflexjs/gatsby-plugin-search-algolia`,
      options: {
        appId: process.env.ALGOLIA_APP_ID,
        adminKey: process.env.ALGOLIA_ADMIN_KEY,
        searchKey: process.env.ALGOLIA_SEARCH_KEY,
        indexName: process.env.ALGOLIA_INDEX_NAME,
        types: [`Page`, `Post`],
  1. Run gatsby build to build your search index.

Adding a search box your site is as easy as:

import { Search } from "@reflexjs/gatsby-plugin-search-algolia"

and then render and style the Search box:

<Search placeholder="Search site..." fontSize="md" />
