Project Description

A Python library for querying the DuckDuckGo API.

Copyright Michael Stephens <me@mikej.st>, released under a BSD-style license.

Source: http://github.com/crazedpsyc/python-duckduckgo Original source: http://github.com/mikejs/python-duckduckgo (outdated)

This version has been forked from the original to handle some new features of the API, and switch from XML to JSON.

Installation

To install run

python setup.py install

Usage

>>> import duckduckgo
>>> r = duckduckgo.query('DuckDuckGo')
>>> r.type
u'answer'
>>> r.results[0].text
u'Official site'
>>> r.results[0].url
u'http://duckduckgo.com/'
>>> r.abstract.url
u'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duck_Duck_Go'
>>> r.abstract.source
u'Wikipedia'
>>> r = duckduckgo.query('Python')
>>> r.type
u'disambiguation'
>>> r.related[1].text
u'Python (programming language), a computer programming language'
>>> r.related[1].url
u'http://duckduckgo.com/Python_(programming_language)'
>>> r.related[7].topics[0].text # weird, but this is how the DDG API is currently organized
u'Armstrong Siddeley Python, an early turboprop engine'
>>> r = duckduckgo.query('1 + 1')
>>> r.type
u'nothing'
>>> r.answer.text
u'1 + 1 = 2'
>>> r.answer.type
u'calc'
>>> print duckduckgo.query('19301', kad='es_ES').answer.text
19301 es un código postal de Paoli, PA
>>> print duckduckgo.query('how to spell test', html=True).answer.text
<b>Test</b> appears to be spelled right!<br/><i>Suggestions: </i>test, testy, teat, tests, rest, yest.
The easiest method of quickly grabbing the best (hopefully) API result is to use duckduckgo.get_zci::
>>> print duckduckgo.get_zci('foo')
The terms foobar /ˈfʊːbɑːr/, fubar, or foo, bar, baz and qux are sometimes used as placeholder names in computer programming or computer-related documentation. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foobar)
>>> print ddg.get_zci('foo fighters site')
http://www.foofighters.com/us/home
Special keyword args for query():
  • useragent - string, The useragent used to make API calls. This is somewhat irrelevant, as they are not logged or used on DuckDuckGo, but it is retained for backwards compatibility.
  • safesearch - boolean, enable or disable safesearch.
  • html - boolean, Allow HTML in responses?
