New to Tagyu: Bookmarklets and Web Services

Freshness Warning
This article is over 13 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

Just added to Tagyu are two new tools and a new feature: a bookmarklet, a web services interface, and the ability to bookmark and link to Tagyu suggestions.

The bookmarklet allows you to select the text on any page and send it to Tagyu. The web services interface gives developers the ability to connect Tagyu to their applications. And now when you look up Tagyu suggestions, the URL of the result page contains your search so you can bookmark or link to a specific set of results.

The documentation of the web services interface says the "request" parameter should be URL encoded, but I got a 404 Not Found error when I tried to request like below: Should I encode the parameter or not?

Hi Adam, I came across a link to your site on digg the other day and I really like the concept of Tagyu, as I am often stuck for good keywords when using furl. I've tried to get the bookmarklet to work, but haven't been successful so far. I'm using Maxthon (the IE Shell) and have added to the list of exception sites in Maxthon's Ad blocker for the popup-window to work (I'm basing this on what I did for activating's bookmarklet). But any time I select any text and click on the bookmarklet, I get the following error: Line:1 Char:1 Code:0 Error:Object doesn't support this property or method URL: (The URL was a test btw). Could you help me out here? Or am I missing some basic step? Thanks in advance! Balaji
