search web api

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately there's no real Google Scholar API (there are a few homemade attempts on GitHub but they rely on scraping the web page results and break easily) so there's no immediate way to get results in a form Alfred can parse and display.  


But if you just want to launch a search the basic custom search is just http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q={query}


In practice, the results are good enough that I use advanced search maybe once every six months (and I probably use Google Scholar at least a dozen times a day).


If you want to go for advanced search you'll need to parse the query string in a workflow -- see 

an example.
