DuckDuckGo-el

https://duckduckgo.com/assets/logo_header.v101.png DuckDuckGo is a web search engine with an easy API.

Lisp:ddg.el is the EmacsLisp API for “The Instant Answer API” for searching and retrieving this kind of results from DuckDuckGo:

Usage

Lisp:ddg.el just have two main functions:

In the asynchronous case when the request has finished, ddg will call the function passed as parameter ‘FUNCTION’ with the result as a parameter. The result will be a JSON parsed list(take a look at the ‘json-read’ function at the JSON package).

Example:

    (defun myfunc (res)
      (setq results res)
      ;; ...
      ;; ...
      )
    (ddg-search-asyn "site:emacswiki duckduckgo-el" 'myfunc)

Small but useful, I like it. – XueFuqiao

[new] When I was writing this I thought that the API presented at http://api.duckduckgo.com could be used for searching strings on the web, like if you use the textbox in the page… but no, it implemets other caracteristics. I’ll update this page now! – ChristianGiménez
