Search UI Kit
SearchStax Studio provides resources to implement site search in the front-end of your web application. These resources are meant to accelerate the development of the site search page regardless of your environment.
- Search UI App
- JS Frameworks
- Search UI Rest APIs
Here is a brief overview of each of these resources.
Search UI App
To accelerate front-end development, we offer a pre-configured search user interface with essential features for a world-class search experience.
You can find the Search UI App under the Search UI Kit in the left navigation pane. You can either view the Search UI directly using the View button or copy the Search Experience Template URL and paste the URL in a separate browser window.
There is a strong push toward headless CMS systems to manage, deliver and render content for users. For more background on headless content management systems, check out our blog post on What are Headless Content Management Systems?.
There are four JS Framework options:
SearchStudio UX Packages
For each of the UX Packages, you can find the Framework description, the Getting Started page and NPM Package Libraries to build SearchStax Studio search pages:
|Framework Description||Getting Started Page||NPM Package|
