What is searx?

Searx is a metasearch engine, inspired by the seeks project. It provides basic privacy by mixing your queries with searches on other platforms without storing search data. Queries are made using a POST request on every browser (except chrom[e|ium]). Therefore they show up in neither our logs, nor your url history. In case of Chrom[e|ium] users there is an exception, Searx uses the search bar to perform GET requests. Searx can be added to your browser's search bar; moreover, it can be set as the default search engine.


  • Based on Alpine Linux.
  • Latest code from asciimoo/searx
  • A unique secret key is generated when booting the first time.


First of all, thanks to wonderfall for his Dockerfile collection. A lot of this image is based on his image, and was only created because wonderfall discontinued maintainership of all his images.

Get the image

You can either build the docker image yourself:

docker build -t

or pull a prebuilt image from my docker registry:

docker pull

Insecure local instance:

docker run \
	--rm \
	--publish 80:8888 \
	--env BASE_URL=http://localhost \
