How do you find these things? This looks incredibly interesting, though I'd probably need to create an encrypted share to keep my meanderings under lock and key, hahaha.

Looks interesting. Spun up the 'benbusby/whoogle-search' image and just changed port from auto/5000 to 8888/5000.

Configuration from the search home page is light: tried dark mode and switched back, then change the root URL to 'something more useful:8888'.

I notice that some of the search specifics revert back to google.com links (video on the shopping tab for instance). But still a very intriguing project.

Think I'll leave this as a private service on the NAS for now, and then maybe open it up but add user authentication to access it. Could be a candidate for VPN Plus' WebVPN 'reverse proxy'.

@Geeked have a few 🍪🍪 for the tip.


Oh, just watched yr video ... I selected the same image.

So when you search for something with this docker, does this docker in the background query google? Or does it has it's own indexer running to search for itself?

this sounds very interesting (in fact, I was always think about using NAS to build my own Internet world :).
But just a trivial questions:
- Does it need to setup a new Docker?
- Does it index or how does it cache the results ( locally for myself?), w.r.t. storage space.
