Cosmic Extensions make it possible to extend the functionality of Cosmic for both the developer and editor. Developers are given a canvas to create interactive views, connect to third-party APIs and customize the editor experience. Think of it as a controllable app within your Bucket.

You can now add the power of Algolia search to your Bucket. This new Extension enables you to sync your Cosmic Objects with Algolia, making your data searchable.  Set up automatic syncing to automatically add / edit / remove content from Algolia. Follow the simple steps below to install and setup your Algolia Search Extension.
