SERP stands for Search Engine Results Page. serpstack is an API that queries the result page of search engines and gives you a clean JSON response.

Search engines like Google used to have straight-forward result listing which made scraping them a whole lot easier. Now, there’s videos, images, audio, definition pages and so much more. This makes scraping the modern search engines a nightmare. There’s also the dreaded captcha wall.

serpstack makes the problems list above non-existent.

serpstack will queries multiple search engines (currently supports Google) and prints the search results as a clear and easy to deal with JSON response. Each result type listed by the results page is highlighted by the API.

How Buddy Turns DevOps to NoOps the DigitalOcean Way

By Chris on Code

In 2019, DevOps still remains something of a codeword: a sphere reserved to developers trained in writing complicated scripts for tools only they know how to use. Tools whose purpose is to make your life easier with automation, but somehow:

  • take weeks to configure and launch

  • require a designated developer to oversee

  • cannot be easily modified

Buddy is a CI/CD tool that doesn’t require DevOps experience and can be used by beginner and expert developers alike. We did that by replacing scripts with preconfigured actions(builds, tests, deployments, etc.), and packing the whole thing in a clear and telling GUI. And making it run deadly fast.

Remember the times when setting up remote servers was a chore? Now you can spin a droplet on DigitalOcean in 55 seconds with 1-click. This is what Buddy does to


Get Your JAM on With Gatsby, React, and Netlify

By Matt Raible

Gatsby is a tool for creating static websites with React. It allows you to pull your data from virtually anywhere: content management systems (CMSs), Markdown files, APIs, and databases. Gatsby leverages GraphQL and webpack to combine your data and React code to generate static files for your website.

JAM – JavaScript, APIs, and Markup – apps are delivered by pre-rendering files and serving them directly from a CDN, removing the requirement to manage or run web servers. You may have heard of JAM apps as the JAMstack.

Netlify is a hosting company for static sites that offers continuous integration, HTML forms, AWS Lambda functions, and even content management.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to use Gatsby to create a blog that integrates with Netlify CMS for content. The app you build will support authoring posts in Markdown and adding/editing posts from your browser or via Git! Finally, I’ll show you how to secure a section of your app with Okta.
