Feedback on GoogleSearchPlugin

-- AshishNaval - 30 Oct 2004

How about a plugin that callable from the view template that forms a google query on the page that you are looking at?

For example: say you are looking at a page called FinancialStatementAnalysis, a button on the template would lead you to (perhaps a popup) page of Google:Financial+Statement+Analysis

Just so you know: I've no plans to make this in the near-term.

Moved this topic from the Codev web to here.

Seems like Ashish implemented Martin's idea.

Ashish: It might help to add an example illustrating how a Google link will look like.

For next version, could you measure and document the Plugin Benchmarks?

Feedback on code:

  • Settings are case sensitive. Name the debug setting GOOGLESEARCHPLUGIN_DEBUG, not GOOGLESEARCHPLUGIN_Debug.
  • Don't use undocumented $TWiki::topicName, better to use the topic name supplied in commonTagsHandler, or the topic name supplied during Plugin init. The one from Plugin init is stored in the Plugin global variable $topic.
