Autocomplete library.

Frontend framework
Our review

What we like

Generic library which makes it easy to build autocomplete. Keyboard navigation available out of the box. You only need to provide a container for the autocomplete and sources for it to get items from. Sources can be static e.g. links, or dynamic e.g. searching a database. Made by, but does not require, Algolia’s search product.

What we don't like

Designed specifically to solve autocomplete, which may be part of search, but can cover other use cases as well e.g. a command bar. This means it doesn’t provide a library of UI components - you’re in charge of building the UI.
