Search API Algolia
This module provides integration with the Algolia service, through Drupal’s Search API. This module is intended to be used by developers, as it does not currently provide any implementation of an actual search interface. Only indexing is currently supported. As a result, enabling that module will not have any visible effect on your application. Search functionality may be implemented using the Algolia Javascript API.
