Using a Custom Renderer | Yext Hitchhikers Platform

If you want to use a use your own template language (e.g. soy, mustache, groovy, etc), you should NOT use the template argument. Instead, you can provide a custom render function to the component.

ANSWERS.addComponent('SearchBar', {
  container: '.search-container',
  render: function(data) {
    // Using native ES6 templates -- but you can replace this with soy,
    // or any other templating language as long as it returns a string.
    return `<div class="my-search">${data.title}</div>`
