Search with Yahoo BOSS!

Project description

Search the web or a specific domain in your Django project using the Yahoo BOSS API.

Installation

First, add djangobosssearch to INSTALLED_APPS

Using the BOSS API requires a key and a secret. Get them from http://developer.yahoo.com/search/boss/ and add them to your projects settings:

BOSS_API_KEY = ''
BOSS_API_SECRET = ''

Then include the views in your projects urlconf:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    url(r'^search/$', include('djangobosssearch.bosssearch_urls')),
)

If you want the search to be limited to a certain domain add the following to the settings:

BOSS_SITE_SEARCH_DOMAIN = 'example.com'

Templates

The templates provided are just an example. Pagination on the results page (bosssearch/results.html) is done using django-pagination.

Configuration

Besides the previously mentioned configuration keys, the following options are also useful if you use the provided urlpatterns and view.

BOSS_SEARCH_MARKET The region (country) to search in (default: ‘en-us’).

BOSS_RESULTS_PER_PAGE The number of results per page (default: 50).
