a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Autocomplete for search box 7 years and 9 months ago
I have a large list of topics that I can use for auto-complete that I already use for other things. That part is done, at least version one of it. What's not done is going from there to the interface to get people to use it. Someone suggested using solr for the delivery, but I haven't looked into it enough yet to know if that is a good way to go about it.

I just pushed a lot of code live to improve Spelling in both directions. A few days ago I made some personal DDG extensions that would make it appear in more situations. Clearly there were some false positives.

The cricket sat/bat was one of those, and I just fixed that. The zsh example was from Yahoo actually, but I just layered some more stuff on top of that, and so it no longer shows either.

I'd appreciate bringing more examples here when you see them so I can continue to improve it.

OK, gotcha. We do some of that a bit now, e.g. you can click on 'Similar sites' and you get related and suggested topics with certain searches. But we haven't gone as far as a clusty or ask by keeping that bar on all the time.

Thx--I was planning to do a follow-up post on that! Let me know if you have suggestions what to include.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling custom bangs, multiple sites searched simultaneously, custom search, and duckduckgo dotfile 7 years and 9 months ago
A  lot of good stuff there. Yeah, I think getting some kind of user store should be first. I think it needs to be server side so that it works with all browsers. I know you don't care about IE, but...

Brief answers first though:

1. Yeah, would require multiple tabs. Right now it just redirects and does not do an open window, so it is not an easy change.

2. Not currently possible, but agree it would be quite useful.

3. I've thought about stuff like this for a while, and it is very like the blekko slashtags.

4. Still looking for a good user account store, but haven't given it much thought yet.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling display top sites for a search term 7 years and 9 months ago
I'm a bit confused. So would you click that list you would be taken to that site to search or you would get search results for that site on DDG (like a site: search)? 

And I presume you're saying sort of identify the query type as health/python/whatever and then have a set of sites for each type?
