React InstantSearch Hooks is an open-source UI library for React that lets you quickly build a search interface in your front-end application.

InstantSearch’s goal is to help you implement awesome search experiences as smoothly as possible by providing a complete search ecosystem. InstantSearch tackles an important part of this vast goal by providing front-end primitives that you can assemble into unique search interfaces.

Edit on CodeSandbox

Note: react-instantsearch-hooks exports renderless components and hooks which can be used for both web and React Native. If you are using React in a web project, we recommend using the package react-instantsearch-hooks-web instead, as it includes complete components that render to the DOM.


React InstantSearch Hooks is available on the npm registry. It relies on algoliasearch to communicate with Algolia APIs.

yarn add algoliasearch react-instantsearch-hooks
# or
npm install algoliasearch react-instantsearch-hooks

Getting started

React InstantSearch Hooks is a headless React library that lets you create an instant search results experience using Algolia’s search API.
