Google-api-proxy provides a static IP for communication with the Google Custom Search search API.


  1. Get the Wikimedia Google API key from [[
  1. Use instead of when interacting with Google's Custom Search JSON/Atom API.

How it works is a Labs web proxy pointing at an instance in the google-api-proxy project with a static IP address. The instance is running an Nginx web server configured as a reverse proxy. All HTTP requests sent to this proxy will be relayed to and the upstream response will be provided back to the requesting client. Details of the Nginx configuration are available on GitHub.

API keys using this proxy will need to whitelist the IP address in the Google developer console.
