what is this?

POC that uses:

  • Scrapy πŸ•ΈπŸ•·πŸ•Έ for a quick and dirty scrape of an MDN subdomain
  • Algolia πŸŽπŸ”πŸŽ for typeahead search

how to run?

short answer: make help πŸ™‚

long answer: ‡️

  • UI: all you'll need is a browser, just run make search (swap in xdg-open if you're running Linux)
  • backend: you'll need...
    • Python 3.4+
    • virtual environment: create it in the project root, activate, and then run make pipin to pull down the dependencies
    • .env: create it in the project root, then add Algolia API keys (APP_ID, API_KEY_ADMIN)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
