https://opencrawl.de (OC) is a free service to collect some URLs and it provides an Opensearch interface to the results. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenSearch

OC is a project from https://suma-ev.de (https://metager.de is another project of them) and https://nebel.de (a company providing search engine services). OC has a german gui only.

OC could be a solution to provide an interface to search the antix documentation with one search. You can search the small search engine from their homepage, but the webinterface is not very nice. If someone builds a website for using OC, I can ask if they set up a search engine. I am not sure, if they provide a multiuser interface, but the URL list could be discussed in the forum.

I suggest: antix.freeforums.org, http://antix.mepis.org/, forum.mxlinux.org, forums.debian.net, wiki.debian.org

Would anybody build a website?

Might be looking at it again.... is the idea similar to
http://antix.daveserver.info/search.html

But using open search rather than Google?


Edit:
For example search conky in there and standard Google search and note the difference.

Jens, you can create a solution locally instead of waiting for someone to "build a website".
(Besides, will the searchsite include the exact list of sites that YOU wish to search?)

good results if you visit google search and type this
Code:
MYSEARCHTERM site:antix.freeforums.org OR site:forum.mxlinux.org OR site:antix.mepis.org OR site:download.tuxfamily.org/antix
so create a local html page which displays webform textbox & button.
Submitting the webform would POST to google search url, appending the following to your urlencoded search term
Code:
site:antix.freeforums.org%20OR%20site:forum.mxlinux.org%20OR%20site:antix.mepis.org%20OR%20site:download.tuxfamily.org/antix

alternatively, and quicker / easier:

visit google seach,
paste boot site:antix.freeforums.org OR site:forum.mxlinux.org OR site:antix.mepis.org OR site:download.tuxfamily.org/antix
and BOOKMARK the result
or create a "new custom search engine" within your web browser (firefox)

above, "boot" is just an example / placeholder search term



another approach: sudo updatedb && sudo locate search-bar
Examine the existing "searchy shortcut launchers" to learn how you can create a new task-oriented launcher

Yes, I didn't see it before you mentioned it. It is like a Google Custom Search with other tools.

I made a custom installation from libre-core with low ram and don't have conky (yet). I guess conky does a normal Google search?!

No conky is the system monitor that runs on the desktop. If you search conky on the page I linked it will show results from antix sites, if you search it in the general google.com it will show many different sources

Ah, Ok, I thought there would be a search bar in conky.
