1. Introduction

`pyGle <>`__ aims to be a *very powerful* tool for just **searching the entire web** by using the *Google* technology, without **any limitations** (or almost no one).

Just with a *few lines* of code you will be able to:

- Perform a *normal search* on Google 馃攷
- Look at *Google Images* for obtaining all the information you need about a pic 馃寘
- Search *the latest news* and also **a lot of articles** on *Google News* 馃摪
- Filter and obtain *patents* by using *Google Patents* 馃摑
- Have a look at hundreds of *different products* at *Google Shops* 馃洅
- Look for *books*, *magazines* and more at *Google Books* 馃摌
- Videos, videos and more videos at *Google Videos* 馃帴

As the speed is a crucial factor, I developed this library in order to be the fastest one for each possible situation.

With every search, a little log is included at the end of the result with the **available stats** for the web scrapping. After some test, I noticed that using `requests <>`__ **slow down** the overall speed. For that reason is why you can see the lib performs all *Internet access* by using `urllib <>`__, which has two advantages:

1. Is included with **all Python installations**, so it is a less library to install.
2. The requests overall time has been reduced at almost **70%**: with *requests*, it took about **3~4 seconds**. With *urllib*, that time now becomes about **~1 second** or less.

With the motivation of the said before, when performing a *research*, the lib **instantly** returns the object that you will use in the future for gathering the results. That object is also known as a **Future** (*you can read more information right here* `馃憠 Python Concurrent Futures <>`__), whose functionality is the following:

- You want to *do a research* at Google.
- As explained before, it needs about **~1 second** to complete, so it is a lot of time for you to do *other things* that do not depend on the result of your search.
- So when you ask `pyGle <>`__ to scrap the web with Google, it returns a **Future** object. At the first moment, it does have **nothing**, but when `pyGle <>`__ ends its work, the Future object will contain all the data.
- `pyGle <>`__ automatically detects the *number of processors* of your system so it can speed-up all the process.

2. Purpose

Searching the web with Google *is very easy* from a web browser such as Chrome or Firefox, but sometimes we need that **information** to be available for a program that we are developing or similar. Or just we need to *transform and work with that info*.

For that situation, `pyGle <>`__ is the real solution. By using the powerful `Python lists <>`__ and also `Python dictionaries <>`__, `pyGle <>`__ will give you all what you need. Let me exemplify you with a simple search of the term *"test"*:

1. Here is the simplicity of `pyGle <>`__ in code for achieving that:

.. code:: python

from pprint import pprint # Not necessary but for a beautiful print
from pyGle import PyGle

pSearch = PyGle(query="test")
ft = pSearch.doSearch() # A Future object

2. And now, when the Future is done, here is the result:

.. code:: python

At this case, I am in Spain, so the results language are based on your **current location** (if you *do not specify one*).

If another page must be searched, all the methods start with: ``with``. You can find more instructions at the `wiki <>`__.

3. Installation

As usual, you have the `pip <>`__ mode or the `easy install <>`__ methods:

*The commands for Windows are the same but without* ``sudo``

*Installing via PyPi (pip)*

- In some Linux systems, *pip* is not directly available in command line, so we have two options:

*Installing pip for Python 3* (assuming that you **already have Python 3 installed**):

.. code:: bash

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt-get install python3-pip

.. code:: bash

## CENTOS ##
sudo yum install python34-setuptools
sudo easy_install pip

- Installing `pyGle <>`__:

Once you did what said before, now you are able to install `pyGle <>`__

.. code:: bash

#### USING PIP ####
sudo pip3 install g-pyGle

## If pip3 is not available ##
sudo pip install g-pyGle

## Via Python 3 ##
sudo python3 -m pip install g-pyGle

## Without admin permissions ##
pip3 install -U g-pyGle
python3 -m pip install -U g-pyGle

*Installing via easy install*

- Basically, we will install *Python 3* on our systems, and then we will be able to install `pyGle <>`__:

- `Windows <>`__
- `Linux (all systems) <>`__
- `MacOS <>`__
- `iOS <>`__
- `Android <>`__

- Now, we can install `pyGle <>`__ as follows:

.. code:: bash

git clone
cd pyGle
sudo python3 install

4. Instructions

Every time we want to use `pyGle <>`__, we will do the following:

.. code:: python

from pyGle import PyGle

`pyGle <>`__ allows us to **enable a history** and **keep the session cookies** (for a faster browsing):

.. code:: python

pSearch = PyGle(enable_history=True, use_session_cookies=True)

As normal, `pyGle <>`__ will only do a normal Google search if we add a query:

.. code:: python

pSearch.withQuery("what we want to search")

Also, with every method, you can continue *defining your needs* without **creating thousands** of lines of code:

.. code:: python

pSearch.withQuery("what we want to search").withContainingTwoTerms("term 1", "term 2").withTextInTitle("text in title").withSafeModeDeactivated().withSearchStartPositionAt(25)

Once we are done, searching is as simple as:

.. code:: python

ft = pSearch.doSearch()

# Wait for the result to be available
search_results = ft.result()

Finally, we can recover (if enabled) all the history of the search we did just:

.. code:: python

history = pSearch.getHistory()

# Or printing history

*If you want to read more, have a look at the *`wiki <>`__.


Another functionality included with this lib is the possibility to work under **Tor**.

If you do not know what is it, **Tor** is the *easiest way* to browse the web anonymously by using proxies that hide yourself. You can read more `right here <>`__.

If you want *to use this functionality*, you need to have Tor installed on your system. Here you have the instructions for your systems:

- `Windows <>`__
- `Linux <>`__
- `MacOS <>`__
- `Android <>`__

Finally, once Tor is configured on your system, for using it is as simple as (*following the latest example*):

.. code:: python

ft = pSearch.doSearch(torify=True)

5. Contribute

If you really appreciate my work, you can *contribute to this project* perfectly, for example:

1. If you find **bugs** 馃攷馃悶, you can comment at `issues <>`__ what happened to you and *I will try to find a solution*.
2. You can **fork** this repository and *include all what you think* `pyGle <>`__ should have. Create a pull request and, if I like your changes, I will include it on the official repo and you will automatically become a developer and maintainer 馃槃
