duckduckgo.py is a simple python module to scrape the duckduckgo search results. The install script will also make available a ddg command line utility that can be conveniently used in a shell pipeline.
A word of warning
This code is intended as a demonstration and, as all scraping utilities, should be used with great caution. By default the code will pause a few milliseconds each time it yields a result to avoid overloading the DDG servers.
It can be used as a python module
>>> import duckduckgo >>> for link in duckduckgo.search('duckduckgo', max_results=10): ... print link ... https://duckduckgo.com/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DuckDuckGo https://duckduckgo.com/about.html [...]
Or as a command line tool
$ ddg -n 10 duckduckgo
$ python setup.py install
