custom search engine for python documentation

recently i started using and I actually enjoy the focus on documentation — usually I just try to do whatever and get by on stackoverflow, but it’s been refreshing to dive into documentation.

(I guess chatgpt has also made me realize how much time i spend avoiding ads and skimming text to find what I want)

unfortunately devdocs only works on a subset of the python libraries i use

i looked into the source and it looks a bit annoying to run on my own (a lot of node, ruby, etc., requires indexing script)

anyway halfway to a terrible start up idea i found a “good enough” solution that scratches my itch

it turns out you can customize google to create a search box that only searches a subset of websites


That engine I set up above is at if you’re curious.
