XT Search for Algolia has mainly three features to implement Algolia Search.
1. XT Autocompletion module
This is the primary module that renders a simple search box. This module displays search results “as you type” in an autocomplete menu using Algolia’s search engine.
2. XT Instant Search module
This module allows creating an instant search results page where the whole page (results, filters, facets and pagination) is updated as you type, to provide end-users with a lightning-fast search experience.
3. XT Indexer
The indexer process is the heart of the extension. It crawls the site and processes the information to submit it to Algolia’s search engine. At this time, it has connectors to Joomla Articles, K2 and SobiPro. The indexer process can be executed from the backend, externally via an URL or from the server command line (CLI).
