  • Search Engine for Tesla.com/cn & TeslaMotors.com

  • Custom Search Engine Built on Searx
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-09-13
    I'm interested in something similar. What I've tried is to set up https://yacy.net/ to index only those websites I care about. I set it up on my home NAS and I configured it to crawl Python, sklearn, and some blogs and it took around 1 hour.

    Searching through the results was quite fast, but I found the results a bit lacking. Maybe with more tuning I could have obtained better answers, but while searching for things in the Python standard library, I would get lots of noise from other places where that function is used.

    Out of curiosity, does anybody know why they didn't build upon an existing open-source search engine like YaCy? Is the YaCy codebase bad? Did/Does it not do what they wanted? Did they not know about it?

    Startpage, Duckduckgo, Qwant, and a few others decided to write their own stuff around Bing instead of further or fork an existing OSS project. Why?


  • Thanks to the selfhosted community, my project Jina is trending on GitHub. 474 people building thier own search engine now using Jina.
    YaCy is what you are looking for I believe. Self-hosted distributed search engine under AGPL.

    There are alternatives to google. I'm not talking only about duck or millionshort[0]. I'm talking about p2p-like search engine like searx[1] and yacy[2]. If some of these independent search engines could collaborate implementing a API to allow cross service search sharing, I think the google search monopoly would soon be threatened.
