Running Searx on Repl.it
h

Using Repl.it git integration, I managed to get a metasearch engine running on Repl.it.

Disclaimer: I did not make Searx. It is an open source project on GitHub and I claim no ownership of this at all

First I clicked the import repo button, I pasted in the url (https://github.com/asciimoo/searx), I changed the host from 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0, and I let it run. It's that easy!

Also you can view the source of the repl here.

@mat1 well ngl if repl was for posting code from github the talk would be flooded. At least you have a disclaimer :| some people post like "Connect 4" or "Tetris" and I just sit there like whattttt

Woah! So, what is searX? How dare you not use DuckDuckGo!

git clone https://github.com/replit/replit-votes.git
cd replit-votes
npm install shaming-replit-users --save
while true; do give votes to "mat1"; node -e "const shame=require('shame');shame('mat1').for('not using duckduckgo')"; done

@Coder100 Searx is a "metasearch" engine that grabs results from a bunch of other search engines (including DuckDuckGo) to find the most accurate results. Also it's completely open source so that's cool

So it's the GNU of the search engines... interesting @mat1
