Image search abstraction - help using google cse

Hi all,
I’m working on the image search abstraction project and I’m trying to use Google cse, but have found the docs to be awful.
I’ve been stuck for a few days on this part and wondered if someone might offer some help or explain what I’m meant to do. After reading posts on this forum and elsewhere, I’m no closer to solving my problem and am now totally fed up & frustrated.
I have the database working and can save & retrieve items, but no idea how to link this to the cse. I though using a node package might be easier but that hasn’t worked for me either. I’m doing the project on Gltch.

Help please, before I go mad. :crazy_face: :wink:
