Webservices for Geeklog


Well, I have finally gotten the Amazon and Google Webservices integrated into Geeklog, as well as eachother and feel comfortable enough to final release them.

I have installed these both on my sites Slapd.Net and My Personal Asylum and they appear to be working as expected...

Features include:

  • Google
    • Full search abilities, and most advanced search queries supported
    • Integrated "related books" search with amazon if configured to do so
    • retreval of "cached" pages from Google
    • Spelling suggestions for typos in search terms
    • Integration with GL's backend DB for counting number of searches per day.
  • Amazon
    • Keyword, and Bestsellers searches
    • cron based GL Blocks for 'canned' displays (only in UNIX currently)
    • Full commission
    • Basic Wishlist support
    • Related items
    • AWS 2.1 support

Still to do:

  • Show google results for amazon searches
  • allow Author, Artist, Director, etc searches
  • Hyperlink search results to the above new searches
  • Optimize codebase

Full installation instruction are included in the README files, if you have any issues, I will keep an eye on this post at Squatty's site for comments

These are both availble for download at squatty.com

This has been a long hard road, and many thanks to Tom Willett and Squatty for all their help!

Also... Squatty... Thank You for your site, its a thankless gig, but it is appreciated...



I just uploaded these files here on this site as well to make life easier Smile
