Installation

You know the drill

$ pip install stacksearch

Usage

CLI

$ stacksearch "This is the query"

or

$ python3 -m stacksearch "This is the query"

Python API

>>> from stacksearch import sync_search
>>> sync_search("This is the query")

or the asynchronous version

>>> import asyncio
>>> from stacksearch import search
>>> async def main():
...    await search("This is the query")

>>> asyncio.run(main())

Have fun!

Features

The benefits of this module as opposed to the other StackOverflow-searching modules is that this module provides the following:

  • A markdown reverser engine to return useful and beautiful answers
  • The ability to return a dictionary of ALL the search results found, not just the first result
  • The ability to return results from all StackExchange sites
  • A beautiful command-line interface for humans via argparse and Rich
  • An optional asynchronous Python API
  • The ability to crank out raw JSON data to use
  • Fully type hinted

Usage Examples

  • For creating a text editor extension built on this package

  • For searching StackOverflow and/or other StackExchange websites without leaving the Terminal (for those Vim people)

  • For getting lots of answers from all StackExchange sites you know
