You already know that in Syndicode blog you can always find the information about something new and nice to try. From now you can build an advanced UI/UX search with customizable widgets using Angular InstantSearch. Today we will tell you about Angular InstantSearch library for creating search UIs in Angular applications.
Remember our article about comparing the main JS frameworks? Well, we have to admit that Angular is getting some new things and a chance to compete with Vue and React again.
This is all about bringing better search to Angular! Angular InstantSearch is compatible with Angular 4 and 5 which means that, even if you are still on Angular 4, you can use it and be sure it will work when you upgrade to Angular 5. It is not compatible with Angular 1 and 2 because the changes between Angular 2 and Angular 4 or 5 were too broad.
What good things can we say about this new Angular InstantSearch library?
- With Angular InstantSearch, widgets can be used easily with Angular directives
- Angular InstantSearch provides an API letting you choose the rendering you want without having to rewrite all the search business logic code
- With Angular InstantSearch, widgets are nothing more than regular DOM elements
