# Feature references

This section is where we document all of MeiliSearch's user-facing features and tools. This does not include API routes or details of the MeiliSearch engine; these each have their own section.

Understanding our reference documentation is easier with background knowledge of MeiliSearch's core concepts. If you're a new user, you might prefer to start with an explanation of MeiliSearch's features or our quick start guide.
