OpenSearch or SearchAction Search Standards
There are many use case scenarios in which users wish to search their Box.com files and folders directly within other software/platforms.
For example, a very popular productivity application for macOS called "Alfred" allows users to integrate custom search shortcuts directly through the application. Performing a search on sites such as Wikipedia, Twitter, eBay, IMDB, Ask.com, LinkedIn, YouTube, Amazon, Weather, Gmail, Google Drive, Translate, Wolfram Alpha, are just a few of the web searches supported.
However, if the site isn't natively supported, a user can add a custom search for a site if the site supports OpenSearch or SearchAction standards.
Many Stock Imagery and Photography websites support these standards to allow the community to search across their catalogs across many different applications and methods.
Does Box support any of these standards or protocols so that users may search their files using many diverse, albeit more customized, methods?
