Yahoo Expands BOSS Developer Tools
Yahoo has added a few new tools to its BOSS platform that the company says will give developers more insight to their search results and help build unique search experiences.
The new tools include:
- Integration with Delicious content – end-users can get Delicious saves, top tags, and count information within their search results
- Advanced language capabilities – developers can now filter specific language results for a given market. BOSS now supports Czech, Hungarian, and traditional Chinese
- New sorting functionality – BOSS News service can now sort by date and/or a specified time range in days, weeks, or hours
Yahoo’s announcement has more information about all three tools, including a few code examples.
