plugin for a google custom search

There are a few google custom searches that I would like to make plugins for. Christian was trying to help me out but I just can’t figure this out. The URL’s returned in a google custom search doesn’t look the same to me as the DA example for creating your own plugin (in the user guide)

Has anyone made a plugin to use for a search set that uses a google custom search?

Perhaps someone could explain easily how? The google custom search in question is … f8e_mv4pou

Here is what my plist looks like (but it isn’t working)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> Description Searches the websites indexed by the Deinde journal search. EncodingUrl UTF-8 EngineUrl Identifier com.danny_zacharias.deinde_journal_search.plugin Info Deinde journal search Plugin 1.0 ©2007, Danny Zacharias Keyword Journal Search LinksEnd <!--z--> LinksNotMatching *.google.* *search?q=cache:* LinksStart <!--a--> Name Deinde journal Search OffsetPerPage 100 ResultsPerPage 100 Start 1 Version 1.5

thanks very much.

Here’s a revised version fixing/improving the following issues:

  • & characters in URL have to be replaced with &
  • =Search string from URL removed
  • LinksStart/End definitions removed
  • LinksNotMatching definition extended

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
	<string>Searches the websites indexed by the Deinde journal search.</string>
	<string>Deinde journal search Plugin 1.0 ©2007, Danny Zacharias</string>
	<string>Journal Search</string>
	<string>Deinde journal Search</string>

It works!! Thanks very much. I thought the plugin would be a little quicker, but it still takes quite alot of time searching (like minutes)

What about Google Books, has anyone made a plugin for that?

I tried altering the Google scholar plugin but it didn’t work. I’m definitely not good at this plugin stuff.
