A client reached out asking about this tool + implementing into their AEM Site. Has anyone used or tried Algolia - or any thoughts on integrating with AEM? Thanks.

Dear Sir,

Algolia is pretty much like Solr, you need to add data to it's index.

https://www.algolia.com/doc/paths/index-data/

You would need to write a custom replication agent to do this work for you:

AEM - How to create and implement custom Replication Agent

HowTo a Custom Replication Agent

To do the search bit, have a look at this implementation:

AEM Solr Search

Please note, you would need to modify most of the API from Solr to Algolia.

Regards,

Peter

I see this posted in 2018,
Try using Elastic search as a service, it provides dashboard and provides trial version to explore all the options.
Here you have a look at the setup for Elastic search as service.

Also you can have a look at the Algolia Site search
Which I found really awesome to work with.
Happy coding!!

I have done a small integration of Algolia with AEM using JAVA API, we can have React API's as well to handle the requests.
Detail information can be found on the Algolia's documentation page. You can check out my blog as well on the integration and initial setup :
