Search with Yahoo BOSS!
Search the web or a specific domain in your Django project using the Yahoo BOSS API.
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'
The templates provided are just an example. Pagination on the results page (bosssearch/results.html) is done using django-pagination.
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).
