import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { InstantSearch, SearchBox, Hits, Panel } from 'react-instantsearch-dom';

// Import default styles
import '@algolia/react-instantsearch-widget-loadmore-with-progressbar/dist/style.css';

const searchClient = algoliasearch('appId', 'apiKey');

  <InstantSearch indexName="indexName" searchClient={searchClient}>
    <SearchBox />
    <InfiniteHits />
        loadMore: 'Load more',
        searchStalled: 'Loading...',
        text: ({ nbSeenHits, nbTotalHits }: TextTranslationArgs) =>
          `You've seen ${nbSeenHits} item${
            nbSeenHits > 1 ? 's' : ''
