.NET agile and extensible web searching API. Built with AngleSharp.


PickAll is primarily designed to collect a limited amount of results (possibly the more relavant) from different sources and process these in a chain of steps. Results are essentially URLs and descriptions, but more data can be handled.


Documentation is available in the project wiki.
