I've had a look at the search API (specifically for the use of a DuckDuckGo search plugin) however I noticed that none of the endpoints seem to give me the information I'm looking for.
I think there needs to be an endpoint which mimics the site search in that it should return a list of possible matches (and it would be great if it also had their relevant info as well (eg. Author, Version, Description)
A search for "moose" on most endpoints doesn't return the same information as the module endpoint of the api does.
This information: http://api.metacpan.org/v0/module/Moose is much better than any of the results here:
I hope I'm making sense, please let me know if you need clarification.
Have you tried the autocomplete API? http://api.metacpan.org/v0/search/autocomplete?q=Moose
It's the closest you get to the search results on metacpan.org
@monken no I hadn't, thanks for pointing it out. I'll have a look...
Marking as resolved as no further feedback
