Frequently asked questions
What is Metasearch? Is it the same as search?
Metasearch is a technical approach in which a search engine (or “broker”) accepts a query from some user (or system), distributes the query to other search engines, waits for the responses, then returns a normalized, unified and ideally relevancy-ranked set of results.
What is Swirl?
Swirl is a metasearch engine released under the Apache 2.0 license. Built on the Python/Django/RabbitMQ stack Swirl includes connectors to many popular systems including search engines, databases and applications – really anything with a query API.
