A key decision to make before you begin the implementation is whether you are going to use the Client-side or Server-side integration method.
Client-side: With the Client-side method HTML is generated by PureClarity for search and merchandising zones. You can change the HTML and the CSS style using Template Management in the admin console. This is the quickest route to implementing the software and the recommended method.
Server-side: The Server-side method provides an API that produces a stream of products, brands and categories for search results, product listing pages and merchandising zones. This approach is more code intense but gives you flexibility if you have bespoke requirements not supported by the Client-side method.
N.B. Autocomplete is always handled client-side by PureClarity for performance reasons.
