1st of all THANK YOU for this great effort!

I was trying your search API, while I can physically go to your test repository, I wasn't able to get to search if I make an API call like:


The error message says:
No such repository. Select:


Notice that I am using the testing API key.  Is the test repository up and running?  What should I do differently?  TIA.

Hello Jin,

Thanks for trying out our API. There are few minor corrections:
  - You need to replace the placeholder "repository" with whatever the repository you are working with. In this case "test".
  - The search API does not understand "name" parameter. Please use "q" for query.

For example, this URL returns a valid result.

Hope this helps,
--Ryo

Thank you for such prompt help!  Yes the biggest area I missed was the name of the repository!  I did this and it works like a charm:


Thanks again!
Jin
