Over the past few months I’ve been working on improving my search experience and couldn’t get it quite right. So finally I’ve created my own. With Goosle, a fork and rewrite of LibreY. The aim is to create a more hassle free search experience for basic search.
Goosle searches in DuckDuckGo and Google and reformats the results in an easy to read template. Image search is handled by Qwant.
On top of that Goosle can crawl and search popular torrent sites for magnet links.
And for some fancy features you can convert currency, look up words in dictionaries and search Wikipedia and Php.net directly with special search queries.
To speed things up quite a bit results are cached for a few minutes in APCu, to benefit from this APCu for PHP must be enabled of-course.
Try it for yourself
I’ve made the code available on Github. https://github.com/adegans/Goosle
Goosle should work on most modern servers that use PHP7.4 or newer and should take less than 5 minutes to install and set up. Check the included readme.md or the Github page for details.
You can post your questions on Github or on my support forum.
