# Web interface

After adding documents to your MeiliSearch, it is possible to try out the search engine with the integrated web interface.

The web interface is served on the address and port specified in the command line argument --http-addr. If not specified, the default address and port is used.


Since the production environment requires an API-key for searching, the web interface is only available in development mode.
