SearchProvider

The SearchProvider should be used as a wrapper for the entire application to provide a way to share application state between hooks, for example, the current query, active filters or the search response.

Usage

It must wrap any components where you are using hooks, usually this is done in an App or index file. You must also specify the pipeline you wish to query.

  • Replace the placeholders with your account and collection IDs from the collection crendentials section in the console.
  • Replace the pipeline name placeholder with the pipeline you'd like to use to query.

Note

It is recommended that you only need to use SearchProvider once at the root of your application, if you find the need to use multiple collections then having multiple SearchProviders would be okay too. You shouldn't nest SearchProviders because each provider will create a separate new context which makes components beneath it (Pagination, Sorting) not behaving as they should.
