Migration note from v2.x to v3.x

In June 2019, we released v3 of our Go client. If you are using version 2.x of the client, read the migration guide to version 3.x. Version 2.x will no longer be under active development.

💡 Getting Started

First, add the Algolia Go API Client as a new module to your Go project:

# First line is optional if your project is already defined as a Go module
go mod init <YOUR_PROJECT_NAME>
go get github.com/algolia/algoliasearch-client-go/[email protected]

Then, create objects on your index:

package main

import "github.com/algolia/algoliasearch-client-go/v3/algolia/search"

type Contact struct {
	ObjectID string `json:"objectID"`
	Name     string `json:"name"`
}

func main() {
	client := search.NewClient("YourApplicationID", "YourAPIKey")
	index := client.InitIndex("your_index_name")

	res, err := index.SaveObjects([]Contact{
		{ObjectID: "1", Name: "Foo"},
	})
}

Finally, you may begin searching a object using the Search method:

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"os"

	"github.com/algolia/algoliasearch-client-go/v3/algolia/search"
)

type Contact struct {
	ObjectID string `json:"objectID"`
	Name     string `json:"name"`
}

func main() {
	client := search.NewClient("YourApplicationID", "YourAPIKey")
	index := client.InitIndex("your_index_name")

	res, err := index.Search("Foo")
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
		os.Exit(1)
	}

	var contacts []Contact

	err = res.UnmarshalHits(&contacts)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
		os.Exit(1)
	}

	fmt.Println(contacts)
}
