possible search engines

Alexandre Flament edited this page Jul 26, 2017 · 65 revisions

Here we can store sites, which could be useful as engine and waiting for an implementation.
Ideas of search engines can be found here : https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html, there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_search_engines, there http://www.searchenginecolossus.com/, and there http://www.metasuchmaschine.org/

and also from there: https://github.com/sebsauvage/rss-bridge (generate rss-feeds for different sites)
