The service provides tools for designing and encoding a custom search engine tailored to the data sources to be searched, the desired outputs in search results, and the logical processes connecting them. A search strategy is assembled via a graphical interface to link logic rules that define result selection, then the completed ruleset is published for external access. Once published it can be accessed to generate results via interactive forms, API, or other methods.
API methods support interaction with the custom-configured set of logical search strategies and filters to generate matching results found in the defined data sources. Methods allow definition of sequences of search filters to employ pre-defined selection criteria in reconfigurable sequences.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
