Thanks! It doesn't look like Rotten Tomatoes has a good way of searching for movies by actor though, another source might be needed.

a comment on the Instant Answer Idea X Degress of Kevin Bacon 4 years and 2 months ago
The !bacon !bang already exists, and links to The Oracle of Bacon (for example !bacon leonardo dicaprio).

Developing an instant answer from this would require an api specific to Bacon numbers, not just IMDb data, because there would be a lot of intermediate processing involved. The Oracle of Bacon has an XML api, which we don't support, so I'm setting this to "Needs Source Suggestions" for now.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling I have a few ideas for instant answers but I don't know Perl. Why not do your instant answers in Python? 4 years and 2 months ago
If you don't know Perl, there are definitely still ways you can contribute to DuckDuckGo! If your idea involves accessing an API, then most of the code can be done in JavaScript. The Perl backend code can be mostly copied and pasted from an example. Check out our Spice documentation.

If your idea involves parsing articles (like in a documentation or wiki format), then you can use Python to write a Fathead.

If neither of the above apply to you, feel free to post on the Instant Answer idea forum to ask other developers to implement your ideas. If someone decides to use the idea, you'll be able to follow its development on GitHub.
