I stumbled upon this one browsing Github after I had been on the lookout for a preferred search engine with privacy as a priority. Searx fits the bill perfectly. I have not recorded any noticeable resource usage, it would actually be a shame not to have this running!
I love the result, Attic Searx is the default search engine on most of my devices by now and is delivering results above expectation. To register Attic Searx in your browser use “https://searx.atticstudios.be/search?q=%s” (without “quotes”)
Feel free to use it, any feedback is always welcome.
This one is pretty much finished as far as I’m concerned. I’ll be keeping an eye on new releases.
I only just started hosting Open Source projects, but figured out enough Python and nginx to get it running. It was a first encounter with uwsgi.
Since docker is still a bit of a black box, I went for the manual installation. Technically it’s a Python script that runs in a virtualenv and is made into a service with uwsgi. Installation went pretty much as described. The short version:
# Install required packages: sudo -H apt-get install \ git build-essential libxslt-dev \ python-dev python-virtualenv python-babel \ zlib1g-dev libffi-dev libssl-dev \ uwsgi uwsgi-plugin-python # Install searx: cd /usr/local sudo -H git clone https://github.com/asciimoo/searx.git sudo mv searx searx sudo -H useradd searx -d /usr/local/searx sudo -H chown searx:searx -R /usr/local/searx # Install dependencies in a virtualenv: cd /usr/local/searx sudo -H -u searx -i virtualenv searx-ve . ./searx-env/bin/activate ./manage.sh update_packages sed -i -e "s/ultrasecretkey/`openssl rand -hex 16`/g" searx/settings.yml # Edit 'searx/settings.yml' if necessary. nano searx/settings.yml exit # Run as a service with uwsgi # Create the configuration file searx.ini (cfr below for contents) sudo nano /etc/uwsgi/apps-available/searx.ini # Activate the uwsgi application and restart: cd /etc/uwsgi/apps-enabled sudo ln -s ../apps-available/searx.ini sudo systemctl restart uwsgi
