REBOL IndeXer - the RIX
For the impatient: RIX is here.
RIX is a search engine robot spidering pages containing the word REBOL. Written in rebol, of course. Please remark that this bot only indexes pages that contain the word REBOL. If you're looking for information about Afghanistan or Canada, this is not the place to go. Unless you're interested in these countries in conjunction, somehow, with the rebol programming language.
Note: don't search for «rebol». Nearly all the records in the database contain this word, and it will therefore be treated as a stop word. You'll get no hits.
The search engine operator may be contacted via email:
This is cool: you can add RIX to the address bar searches in some browsers. You'll find what you need for FireFox here. As for the Opera browser, you'll need to add these lines to your search.ini file (in your Opera profile folder):
[Search Engine 31] Name=RIX - the Rebol IndeXer URL=http://babelserver.org/rix?q=%s&sourceid=opera&num=%i Query= Key=rix Is post=0 Has endseparator=1 Encoding=utf-8 Search Type=0 Verbtext=17063 Position=-1 Nameid=0
Make sure you edit the file while Opera is not running. When this is done, you may type e.g. «rix cool application» in the Opera address bar to search the RIX for the words cool application. (In FireFox, I don't know if there is such an address bar shortcut, but the link above will at least let you integrate the RIX search in the browser.)
The RIX search engine is accessed here.
The RixBot is work in progress. It may, at times, function in unexpected ways (or not function at all), due to rewriting and management of database and script etc. Bare with me.
