feature: extension for search engins

Postby random » 25 Jul 2015 21:47

hello, it will be good if shareaza integrate a feature to let it take advantage of torrent search engin, so whenever a user start a search for file of type Bittorrent shareaza wont only search at G2 clients but requesting those search engins which a lot of them offers this service to some Bittorent client by simply adding links.

hi, a search box like the small one in the right in mozilla, once you type what you want to search for and select what search engin another window is opened for that.
some of those torrent search engin have already their plugin for browsers.
i am not sure vis-a-vis legality or what some sites could hide in some ads potentially dangerous softs or so.

here's some:
KAT https://kat.ph/torrents/usearch/?q=
isohunt https://isohunt.to/torrents/?ihq=
PirateBay https://thepiratebay.mn/search/
Torrentz https://www.torrentz.com/search?q=
YIFY https://www.yify-torrents.com/browse-movie/


i have some other features to suggest:
- a single monitor for each file so we could set up a bandwidth limit individually for each file.

- when it's about mutli-files torrent download it will be very easier if the users could in "properties" window at "Files" select priority or turn off several files by selecting them at the same time, instead of do that one by one which the case for one.

- since files downloaded from a torrent are usually excessively named, long names including site,quality,subs teams...etc
the idea is to add a fucntion like the one managing results filtring (RegExp and so) but includes a rename feature. if a user enable it, at the end of the download file(s) will be renamed or striped from some words as the user specifed.
(i didnt seen old_death around since a while), thanks for taking those points into consideration

And how to parse and build-in its search results to the Shareaza? I meant practically.

you dont have to parse anything it would be complicated take time and ressources.
shareaza do only open the browser at the address for example let's say: https://kat.ph/torrents/usearch/?q=here_what_user_type
same as mozilla firefox does with search engines bar you only select what search engin google,yahoo,wiki.. you can add or delete them and type whatever you want to search.
here what mozilla opens when you type test and search it with yahoo https://search.yahoo.com/search?p=test&ei=UTF-8

then the user choose what suits him browse the site results to find the suitable .torrent he was looking for

i think shareaza should become lighter and faster (not easy i know), but i dont see any good reason why shareaza still supporting Gnutella1 which is almost dead, isnt a waste of ressources?
