New Instant Answers
From the very beginning, we saw DuckDuckHack as a place where anyone can start sharing and creating instant answers for DuckDuckGo. You’ve probably seen some of these instant answers before—we’ve had them for movies, books, the weather, programming languages, and even funny webcomics.
We’ve gotten a lot of amazing ones over the past few weeks, and, although some of these are a bit technical, I’d like to share them with you before we close out 2013.
Regular Expressions Cheat Sheet
We use a lot of regular expressions (or regexp as some kids call them these days) here at DuckDuckGo, and we’re very happy that we got this one from Rob Emery.
Searching for LaTeX commands is not easy, and it usually involves digging into PDF cheat sheets online. So Jason Dorweiler made one to make everyone else's lives a little bit easier.
We have a present for our UK users, too. Tom Bebbington sent us an instant answer that shows the current schedules of different BBC channels.
The code for these instant answers are, of course, open source, so if you'd like to add or change anything, you can always find the code on GitHub.
Happy holidays, everyone!
