Google plugin for Phergie

Phergie plugin for returning Google search results and estimated result counts.

Build Status Test Coverage Code Climate Buy me a beer


This plugin provides a simple method for performing Google lookups from within IRC. By default, the plugin accepts one of 2 commands (google and googlecount) and outputs either the top result for your search query, or the estimated result count.

I'd also recommend installing the CommandAlias plugin, which can be used to alias the commands (ie, to use "g" instead of "google").


The recommended method of installation is through composer.

composer require chrismou/phergie-irc-plugin-react-google

See Phergie documentation for more information on installing and enabling plugins.


This plugin requires the Command plugin to recognise commands, and the http plugin to query Google for your search results.

If you're new to Phergie or Phergie plugins, see the Phergie setup instructions for more information. Otherwise, add the following references to your config file:

return array(
    // ...
    'plugins' => array(
        new \Chrismou\Phergie\Plugin\Google\Plugin,
        new \Phergie\Irc\Plugin\React\Command\Plugin,  // dependency
        new \Phergie\Plugin\Dns\Plugin,                // dependency
        new \Phergie\Plugin\Http\Plugin	               // dependency

By default, the plugin will respond to "google" for Google searches, and "googlecount" for estimated results. counts.

Or, you can pass references to the providers you want to use as a config array, where the array key is the command you want the bot to respond to and the value is the class to use.

new \Chrismou\Phergie\Plugin\Google\Plugin(array(
    'providers' => array(
        "google" => "Chrismou\\Phergie\\Plugin\\Google\\Provider\\GoogleSearch",
        "googlecount" => "Chrismou\\Phergie\\Plugin\\Google\\Provider\\GoogleSearchCount"


To run the unit test suite:

curl -s | php
php composer.phar install

If you use docker, you can also run the test suite against all supported PHP versions:
