ANN: Google custom search engine for Python


Gerard flanagan

What is it?

A Google custom search engine which targets only the following sites:

+ `The Hazel Tree <>`__
+ `The Python standard library docs <>`__
+ `The Python wiki <>`__
+ `Python Package Index <>`__

Where can I access it?

The home page of the search engine is here:

As well as accessing it from its home page, you can link to it from your
own web sites, or add it as a gadget to your Google home page (if you
have one) - see the above link for details.

No ads

`The Hazel Tree <>`__ is a not-for-profit site
and no ads will appear in the search results.

Using refinements

To refine the search to any of the individual sites, you can specify a
refinement using the following labels: stdlib, wiki, pypi, thehazeltree

So, to just search the python wiki, you would do:

somesearchterm more:wiki

and similarly:

somesearchterm more:stdlib
somesearchterm more:pypi
somesearchterm more:thehazeltree


`The Hazel Tree <>`__ is a collection of popular
Python texts that I have converted to reStructuredText and put together
using `Sphinx <>`__. It's in a publishable state,
but not as polished as I'd like, and since I'll be mostly offline for
the next month it will have to remain as it is for the present.
However, the search engine is ready now and the clock is ticking on its
subscription (one year, renewal depending on success of site), so if
it's useful to anyone, it's all yours (and a link back to would be appreciated).
