WooCommerce + Algolia = Awesome

⏲️ Time: < 1 min

In the past year, I really got to up my experiences and skillsets with Algolia Search, specifically through WebDevStudios’ maintained plugin WP Search With Algolia. This is thanks to a nice little handful of clients that all brought their own needs and usecases for the search application and Saas.

One thing that I felt WebDevStudios was kind of leaving on the table was WooCommerce integration. However, that doesn’t mean that we’re necessarily going to add WooCommerce portions to the core plugin. Instead I grabbed the brass ring with a specific client project to learn how to do WooCommerce integration with what was already available out of box. I then turned that into a three part post that was posted to the WebDevStudios blog. Thus the purpose of this post there. Cross posting!

You can find the three parts at the following links:

It is most definitely not the end-all-be-all of WooCommerce customization, but I definitely hope it’s a solid starting point that can be iterated on and built upon based on everyone’s needs.

I am very proud of my own education and knowledge development in regards to Algolia Search and know that I’ve learned even more since I worked on the project that birthed the blog posts. I’m excited for what I can document and provide in the future.
