✨ Features

  • Simple: You can get started with only 5 lines of YAML
  • Robust: It benefits from all the new features of our PHP Client v2, like the wait() method
  • Flexible: All methods take optional $requestOptions to let you handle your data as you wish
  • Dev-friendly: Auto-completion and type-hinting thanks to an exhaustive documentation

💡 Getting Started

First, install Algolia Search Bundle Integration via the composer package manager:

composer require algolia/search-bundle

You will also need to provide the Algolia App ID and Admin API key. By default, they are loaded from environment variables ALGOLIA_APP_ID and ALGOLIA_API_KEY.

If you use .env config file, you can set them there.

ALGOLIA_APP_ID=XXXXXXXXXX
ALGOLIA_API_KEY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

If you don't use environment variables, you can set them in your parameters.yml.

parameters:
    env(ALGOLIA_APP_ID): XXXXXXXXXX
    env(ALGOLIA_API_KEY): xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Indexing data

First, we need to define which entities should be indexed in Algolia. Each entry under the indices config key must contain at least the 2 following attributes:

  • name is the canonical name of the index in Algolia
  • class is the full name of the entity to index

Example:

algolia_search:
  indices:
    - name: posts
      class: App\Entity\Post

Via CLI

Once your indices config is ready, you can use the built-in console command to batch import all existing data.

# Import all indices
php bin/console search:import

# Choose what indices to reindex by passing the index name
php bin/console search:import --indices=posts,comments

Before re-indexing everything, you may want to clear the index first, see how to remove data.

Simple Search

In this example we'll search for posts. The search method will query Algolia to get matching results and then will create a doctrine collection. The data are pulled from the database (that's why you need to pass the Doctrine Manager).

$em = $this->getDoctrine()->getManagerForClass(Post::class);

$posts = $this->searchService->search($em, Post::class, 'query');
