Algolia


Query your Algolia data using Twig

About

Algolia for Craft CMS allows you to easily pull search results from Algolia into your Twig templates or through REST API endpoints.

Template Usage

Browse an index

Additional search parameters can be provided in the params object.

{% for result in craft.algolia.browse({
    index: "indexName",
    query: "optional query",
    params: {
      distinct: true,
      getRankingInfo: true
    }
  })
%}

{% endfor %}

Search an index

Additional search parameters can be provided in the params object.

{% set search = craft.algolia.search({
    index: "indexName",
    query: "optional query",
    params: {
      hitsPerPage: 5,
      page: 7
    }
  })
%}

{% for hit in search.hits %}

{% endfor %}

Perform a multiple query search

Additional search parameters can be provided in each queries object.

{% set search = craft.algolia.multipleQueries([
    {
      indexName: "indexName1",
      query: "optional query"
    },
    {
      indexName: "indexName2",
      query: "optional query"
    }
  ])
%}

{% for group in search.results %}
  {% for hit in group.hits %}

  {% endfor %}
{% endfor %}

Parsing filters

When using filters in an Algolia search the engine requires a particular syntax. Rather than stringifying your filters in Twig this plugin offers a way to convert an object like...

{
  food: ['fries', 'cake', 'pizza'],
  colors: ['blue', 'green', 'red'],
  featured: true
}

to a valid Algolia filter string like...

'(food:"fries" OR food:"cake" OR food:"pizza") AND (colors:"blue" OR colors:"green" OR colors:"red") AND (featured:"1")'
{% set filters = {
  food: ['fries', 'cake', 'pizza'],
  colors: ['blue', 'green', 'red'],
  featured: true
} %}

{{ craft.algolia.parseFilters(filters) }}

Using JSON REST API controllers

In additional to Twig variables you can make a POST request to one of the following controller endpoints. The same index, query and optional attributes are available when you make your POST request.

NOTE: The following examples use Axios for making API requests

Browse an index

Additional search parameters can be provided in the params object.

axios.post("/actions/algolia/default/browse", {
  index: "indexName",
  query: "optional query",
  params: {
    distinct: true,
    getRankingInfo: true
  }
}, {
  headers: {
    "X-CSRF-Token": YOUR_CRAFT_CSRF_TOKEN
  }
});

Search an index

Additional search parameters can be provided in the params object.

axios.post("/actions/algolia/default/search", {
  index: "indexName",
  query: "optional query",
  params: {
    hitsPerPage: 5,
    page: 7
  }
}, {
  headers: {
    "X-CSRF-Token": YOUR_CRAFT_CSRF_TOKEN
  }
});

Perform a multiple query search

Additional search parameters can be provided in each queries object.

axios.post("/actions/algolia/default/multiple-queries", {
  queries: [
    {
      indexName: "indexName1",
      query: "optional query"
    },
    {
      indexName: "indexName2",
      query: "optional query"
    }
  ]
}, {
  headers: {
    "X-CSRF-Token": YOUR_CRAFT_CSRF_TOKEN
  }
});
