The most important part of any web or mobile app is the content it provides. Exchanging data is a fundamental feature of any modern app. What distinguishes a great app from a mediocre one is the quality of accessing & presenting the data. Using API is the most popular way of setting up a communication system between external systems. Building a great API is a complicated process. Fortunately, there are many tools to help us out. One of them is a library called Searchkit.
Searchkit is a tool allowing you can quickly build a search experience using predefined GraphQL resolvers and React components. Built on the top of Apollo GraphQL, React & Elasticsearch, Searchkit makes building a high-quality API a lot easier. The library provides GraphQL resolvers dedicated to handling the most common use cases you could think of when using filtering oriented API beginning with basic operations such as simple querying, ending on more tricky ones such as efficient facet filtering or pagination.
The makers of the Searchikit are motivated by the idea of providing a great search experience for all users, even those not fluent in Elasticsearch & React. For this group of users Searchkit offers an out of the box solution that provides UI components flawlessly working with Searchkit’s API. If you are looking for a search solution for your project Searchkit delivers a great search experience in no time by leveraging Elastic’s EUI React components.
