Python search engine

Google launched custom search engines today. You can customize the search engine in a variety of ways, but the primary control is selecting which sites to include in the search engine. I've been working on a Python search engine that has technical and community sites for Python programmers. If search for socket, the top results is Andrew Kuchling's Socket Programming HOWTO, which is result five on a regular Google search.

Please give it a try. If you find it helpful, you can volunteer to help maintain it.

Looks like we're competing :-)

Jeremy,

Also note Fuzzyman's version, which indexes 1500+ sites. Is this a place for collaboration or do these serve different niches?

Really I tried both (+foords one), I found yours better in selecting sites, for example search for "threads" on both and see the results, yours gives links to python threads related pages, where is Foord's one returns results to Java! and just see result N#7 it is "Threads magazine"! not even a programming site!!!

Anyways thanks for you effort and I wish you will continue maintaining it.

Best,
