Use the Quantic library

What’s Coveo Quantic?

Coveo Quantic is a Lightning Web Component (LWC) library for assembling powerful and responsive Coveo for Salesforce search interfaces. Quantic components are self-encapsulated, composable, and lightweight.

Under the hood, Quantic relies on the Coveo Headless library to interface with Coveo and handle the application state.

We are also working on expanding the library to cover more use cases, such as Insight panels and Case Assist components. Stay tuned!

When Should I Use Quantic?

Quantic is the most modern way to build Coveo for Salesforce search interfaces. As LWCs, Quantic components are faster than the previous generation of Coveo for Salesforce components, implemented in the Lightning Aura framework.

As opposed to Coveo Lightning Aura components that you can drag and drop out of the box, the Quantic library is deployed as a unlocked package and requires you to create your own components from it. This means that using Quantic requires developer skills. Assuming that you have such skills, you can wrap the components of the Quantic package to create your own search interface component. It’s much easier to create components using Quantic components than it is using the Coveo for Salesforce Lightning Aura ones.

In short, if you have developer skills and want to create new Coveo for Salesforce search interfaces, we recommend using Quantic.
