Asyncio API wrapper for the Google Custom Search JSON API.


Want stable releases?

pip3 install -U async_cse

Living on the edge? Want hotfixes?

pip3 install -U git+


import async_cse

client = async_cse.Search("Your API Key") # create the Search client (uses Google by default!)
results = await"Python", safesearch=False) # returns a list of async_cse.Result objects
first_result = results[0] # Grab the first result
print(first_result.title, first_result.description, first_result.url, first_result.image_url) # Title, snippet, URL, and Image URL (if specified)

await client.close() # Run this when cleaning up.

Getting image results

To get image results with the default engine, use image_search=True when searching, like so:

await"Python", safesearch=False, image_search=True) # returns a list of async_cse.Result objects

Custom search engines

To use Search objects with a custom search engine, provide the ID of the search engine.

async_cse.Search("Your API Key", engine_id="015786823554162166929:mywctwj8es4")


SafeSearch can also be turned off by setting safesearch=False when using the search() method.

Getting an API key

You can get an API key by going here and scrolling down to the API key section. API key

(New in 0.3.0) API Key Shuffling

Key shuffling may be used as a fail-safe for keys that run out of requests, effectively giving you +100 requests for each key passed.
Just pass a list of keys when instantiating your Search client.
Here's a demonstration of this:

import async_cse

client = async_cse.Search(["API Key 1", "API Key 2", "API Key 3"]) # Multiple keys as a list
await"Python") # Uh oh, one of these keys doesn't work! Trying again with another...

When async-cse detects a non-working key, it will remove it from its internal list and retry the search.
