And just a reminder that we're still trying to improve our coverage for programming searches. In an ideal world, any programming-related query should return a helpful Instant Answer, saving time for us developers. Please take a look at https://github.com/duckduckgo/duckduckgo/wiki/Programming-IA-Coverage and see what you can add!
Of course, you can also help us out in other areas such as the issues or improvements below:
Currency: Regression: Flags are too big on mobile The flags are now too big (and thus blurry) on mobile devices. Adjust the CSS to fix this.
Forvo: Layout breaks with long words on small screens Some results that have long phrases tend to break the UI.
Astrobin Apod: Trigger on “apod” This Instant Answer should also trigger on just “apod”.
Convert Simple Structured Answer Goodies to Full Templates Goodies have full support for templates, and we’d like to make sure all Goodies are using our full templates.
Dictionary: Some words show two play buttons There should only be one play button on the Instant Answer.
Last.fm: Require description before displaying We need to filter out terrible results, and one way to find bad results is to remove things that don’t have descriptions.
Thanks as always for your help and have a good weekend!
