A Book Search Engine in Nodejs

So here it is a result of my learning nodejs and express framework. Journey for this started from my thing about books. I am fond of novels and so I thought let’s build a search engine for books where I can see at what price they are on various merchant websites. I thought this can be good for my learning nodejs. So I learnt nodejs and learnt how express framework works with node. I learnt the request response chain in nodejs and it was a nice experience for me. I have used isbndb.com for isbn database and fetched everything from that and I have also used google book api a lil bit. Sometimes this book search engine will not function because of isbndb.com (They have a problem of handling multiple request at the same time). But don’t worry reload it… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have hosted this engine on appfog as it is a nice hosting for nodejs. The site is live at here … If you are interested in how this functions then feel free to look at the code on github. The github repo link is Github.

Feel Free to use it and modify it to fit your needs.

My Webpage…

So finally my webpage is up and running. I have learnt many things while creating it. Firstly I want to create it in Ember.js, then I shifted to Node.js and express … then I finally created it with Ember.js , leaving Node.js for other project… ;). So I have Learnt how Node.js can be combined with Ember.js and got a feel of convoy and connect. I integrated some CSS3 transitions so that viewers has some great feel about it and used facebook graph api for my image. So If I will change my profile pic on my Facebook Account then the image at my webpage will update automatically.ย  I also used google analytics to keep track of users visiting my site. So if you are interested in code then you can grab it from Github Repo Link. Now I have revamped my webpage and it is live at this link.

Ember.js Thought Search engine based on Attitude

As I have mentioned about my tweet search engine in my previous postย  named https://activegeek22.wordpress.com/2012/07/02/tweet_search/ . So looking at it one of my friends said “So what twitter also provides this feature” and I said that “those who are not on twitter can use it as a thought search” but I was not fully satisfied with my application.

Then I got an idea of integrating behaviour in this application to use it as a real thought search engine and so here it is my tweet thought search engine which loads tweets on the basis of a keyword and a behaviour or attitude. Suppose you have to search a thought (Tweet :P) about say “ember.js” and you want to have these thoughts with a positive attitude in it like “ember.js is awesome… “… So go ahead and type ember.js in textfield and choose an Attitude negative/positive/normal ant hit “Go” button and see the magic… ๐Ÿ™‚

I have designed this application in ember.js and hosted on http://tweetsearch.site90.com/ and the github repo is here https://github.com/tarun29061990/Thought_Search.git ..

Feel Free to use it and make the most of it.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ember.js Real Time Tweet Search Engine

One Day I was wondering about accessing thoughts of various people on a particular subject, So in order to do that I have to access a hub on which millions of people share their thoughts and twitter is the one which can fulfill my purpose. Recently I was learning Ember.js and playing with twitter API. So I thought about making a tweet search engine which can search tweets on the basis of keyword provided. Now I got stuck on how to fetch real time tweets (Tweets which are posted at the same time when I hit the search button), So i got an idea of updating it time after time thereby making it a real time tweet search engine… ๐Ÿ™‚

I have coded this search engine in Ember.js and used twitter Api to fetch tweets. My Feelings about ember.js are somewhat like what we cal AWESOME.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here I hosted this search engine on http://tweetsearch.site90.com . Have a look and the disadvantage related to this is that it is not FULLY optimised and it hangs when the list contains millions of tweets… So I am working on that and will update this really soon.
See this search engine on my github accountย https://github.com/tarun29061990/Tweet_Search.git . . ๐Ÿ™‚
