README

Laravel 4.x wrapper for the Google Custom Search Engine API. This may work for Laravel 5, but has not been tested.

Note: You will need an API key and search engine configured in your Google Custom Search control panel.

composer require iatstuti/google-cse

Once installed, add the Service Provider into app/config/app.php

'providers' => array(
    // ...
    'Iatstuti\GoogleCse\GoogleCseServiceProvider',
    // ...
),

If you wish to use an alias, set the following (also in app/config/app.php)

'aliases' => array(
    // ...
    'Iatstuti\GoogleCse\Facades\LaravelFacade',
    // ...
),

Lastly, publish the package configuration and update the configuration in app/config/packages/iatstuti/google-cse/cse.php.

php artisan config:publish iatstuti/google-cse

To use the package, you can make a call to GoogleCse::search($term).

Calls to this this method will return an array of items from the JSON structure outlined here.
