SearchLink 2.3.50 is out and contains fixes for some recent changes in DuckDuckGo’s responses. It currently passes all tests except for one (TMDB is returning a movie for the search result “Brad Pitt”, rather than the actor page, and when I add “actor” to the search it dumps out to IMDB, which I don’t fully understand).

Don’t forget that the source code is all neatly organized on GitHub and you can compile the whole thing as a gem for command line usage, if you like. Every search is a plugin and you can add new search types pretty easily. If you do extend SearchLink at all, be sure to make a Pull Request and be part of the development!

Download below, and see the SearchLink project page for more details!

Update: Also added browser identification headers when trying to get a page title, which avoids some 502 errors on sites that ban curl scraping (like IMDB).
