The Algolia CLI is accessible directly from a developer’s terminal so they can quickly complete tasks or write comprehensive scripts that automate work with Algolia. The Algolia CLI can be used to configure changes to any index, create synonyms, migrate settings, export an index to a file, reload snapshots, and much more, without the need to write any code complex and scaffolding in specific programming languages. From managing simple operations to complex workflows, Algolia’s CLI makes it easier to implement changes and relieve the developer team by creating broader accessibility within the IT team.

The Algolia CLI is fully open-source, MIT-licensed, and resides in a public GitHub repository, so developers have the ability to further customize the code as needed. The Algolia CLI is now available and can be installed today.

React to InstantSearch Hooks

React InstantSearch Hooks is a new iteration of the React InstantSearch library, an open-source UI library for quickly building a search and discovery interface in a front-end application without code, which now works with React Hooks, a web-based framework for creating apps. New enhancements let developers use pre-made UI widgets, or go headless and take full rendering control with hooks. Developers can start using React InstantSearch Hooks today.
