State-of-the-art search for technical documentation

We're kind of scratching our own itch here. As developers, we spend a lot of time reading documentation, and it isn’t always easy to find the information we need.

No one's to blame, building a good search is a complex challenge. We just happen to have a lot of experience doing that, and we want to share it with the developer community.

Learn-as-you-type experience

Documentation speaks to your users. Ideally, this conversation will be pleasant and efficient. Everyone visiting your documentation page has a different need: Some are exploring your product, some are trying to get started, and some are stuck and need help.

DocSearch is designed to provide relevant search results at every level. Its structured layout give the users more context to understand the product.

How it works

  • Scraping

    We scrape your documentation

    We built a website crawler designed to index every section of your documentation.

    Just send us the URL of your documentation, and we’ll run the scraper every 24h so you’re always up-to-date.

  • Configuration

    We configure your search

    You don’t need to configure any settings or even have an Algolia account.

    We take care of this automatically to ensure the best documentation search experience.

  • Implementation

    You add docsearch.js to your docs

    We'll send you a script that integrates Algolia's autocomplete to power your search.

    You will receive the same speed, relevance, and best-in-class UX as our paying customers.
