twingly_search library talks to a commercial blog search API and requires an API key. Best practice is to set the
TWINGLY_SEARCH_KEY environment variable to the obtained key.
twingly_search.Client can be passed a key at initialization if your setup does not allow environment variables.
To learn more about the capabilities of the API, please read the Twingly Search API documentation.
twingly_search is documented with pydoc. To read the documentation directly in your console you can run
or you can start a local pydoc web server with
pydoc -p 1234 twingly_search
In this case documentation will be available at http://localhost:1234/twingly_search.html
