Why?

This UI template has two main objectives:

  • Accelerate your development by providing you with an end-to-end implementation with all building blocks you need. You can re-use 90% or 10% of it and customize the rest – it’s your choice.

Wer’e building this UI template with the following guiding principles in mind:

  • Seamless searching and browsing: navigate the catalog (and more) via a single product listing page for a unified search and browse experience.
  • Mobile-first:: optimized for a cross-device device experience with mobile at the heart of it.
  • Designed with “real-life” constraints in mind: don’t compromise on performance, SEO, or accessibility. As a start, this template reaches more than 90% on all Lighthouse scores.
  • Easily customizable: configure the UI template according to your needs. Create a custom theme, or add new pages to your site.
  • Modular and extensible by design: builds on top of InstantSearch widgets and Autocomplete.js plugins, which can be customized and extended.
