This is a Ruby library to access the DuckDuckGo Zero Click Info API.
gem install duck-duck-go
require "duck_duck_go" ddg = DuckDuckGo.new zci = ddg.zeroclickinfo("Stephen Fry") # ZeroClickInfo object zci.heading # Stephen Fry zci.abstract_text # Stephen John Fry is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, ... zci.related_topics["_"].text # Stephen Fry (cricketer) ...
This library accesses the DuckDuckGo Zero Click Info API, and returns an DuckDuckGo::ZeroClickInfo object containing the result.
Depending on the result type, the related_topics hash will contain slightly different results.
For most queries, related_topics["_"] contains an array of the related topics.
For a disambiguation query, related_topics["_"] contains the related topics, where as related_topics["Topic"] contains the disambiguation results. For example, searching for apple, you will find a related_topics["Compaines"] entry containing Apple Inc and Apple Corp, amongst others.
API and design heavily influenced by WWW::DuckDuckGo, the equivalent Perl module.
