I published a repo called searchfiy on GitHub

Hi everyone!

I published a repository called searchify for a hobby. It is written in JavaScript.

Searchify generates searchable links (optionally anchor tags) for search engines or custom URLs. Maybe that would be useful for you.

I'm not sure if this will help someone. But I used searchify in my project with Vue.

Pull Requests are welcome. Thanks!

Nice idea! It would be nice if browsers allowed to query for the default search engine and could be hook up to this (dreaming is free)

It would be good. Is there a way to do this idea?

Thanks for your comment!
