Next, in the FOOTER HTML section add the below code to hide the default search bar:

<style>
  .rm-SearchToggle {
    display: none;
  }
</style>

Then add the chat button and search bar:

<script type="text/javascript" defer>
  const inkeepScript = document.getElementById("inkeep-script");
  const readmeHeaderSearch = document.querySelector(".rm-Header-search");
  const inkeepDiv = document.createElement("div");
  inkeepDiv.id = "inkeepSearchBar";

  // configure and initialize the widget
  const addInkeepWidget = (componentType, targetElementId) => {
    const inkeepWidget = Inkeep().embed({
      componentType,
      targetElement: targetElementId,
      colorModeSync: {
        observedElement: document.documentElement,
        isDarkModeCallback: (el) => {
          const currentTheme = el.getAttribute("data-color-mode");
          return currentTheme === "dark";
        },
        colorModeAttribute: "data-color-mode",
      },
      properties: {
        stylesheetUrls: ['/path/to/stylesheets'], // optional
        baseSettings: {
          apiKey: "INKEEP_API_KEY", // required
          integrationId: "INKEEP_INTEGRATION_ID", // required
          organizationId: "INKEEP_ORGANIZATION_ID", // required
          primaryBrandColor: "#26D6FF", // your brand color, widget color scheme is derived from this
          organizationDisplayName: "Inkeep",
          // ...optional settings,
        },
        modalSettings: {
          // optional settings
          openShortcutKey: "L"
        },
        searchSettings: {
          // optional settings
        },
        aiChatSettings: {
          // optional settings
          botAvatarSrcUrl: "https://mydomain.com/mylogo", // use your own bot avatar
          quickQuestions: [
            "Example question 1?",
            "Example question 2?",
            "Example question 3?",
          ],
        },
      },
    });
  };

  const observer = new MutationObserver(() => {
  	readmeHeaderSearch.appendChild(inkeepDiv)
  });
  observer.observe(document.head, { childList: true });

  inkeepScript.addEventListener("load", () => {
    const widgetContainer = document.getElementById("inkeepSearchBar");
		    
    addInkeepWidget("ChatButton");
    widgetContainer && 
	    addInkeepWidget("SearchBar", "#inkeepSearchBar");
  });
</script>
