Time for action – basic installation and configuration of the Search API module

In the following steps, we'll download, install, and configure the Search API module:

  1. First, download the search_api module using the method that you're used to. If you have Drush installed, as explained in the Mobile First, Responsive Design section of Chapter 5, Theming in Drupal 8, you'll be able to type the following at the command line:
    $ drush dl search_api
    $ drush en search_api
    
  2. Before we go further, we should follow Drupal's suggestion to uninstall the core search module which the Search API module replaces.
