var express = require('express'); var path = require('path'); var app = express(); var request = require('request'); // The main search function var bing_web_search = function (search, callback) { console.log('Searching the Web for: ' + search); var options = { method: 'GET', url: '', qs: { q: search }, headers: { 'ocp-apim-subscription-key': '<YOUR_SUBSCRIPTION_API_KEY>' } }; request(options, function (error, response, body) { callback(error, body); }); }; app.get('/', function (req, res) { bing_web_search('<YOUR_SEARCH_QUERY>', function(error, body) { if (!error) { res.send(body); } else { throw new Error(error); } }); }); app.listen(3000, function () { console.log('Example app listening on port 3000!'); });
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)
