Woah, it's all JS front-end with no back-end? Neat. That would limit
ability to support other search APIs to those that allow CORS JS access,
but that's not unreasonable.
If you don't mind, I'd recommend slapping a license on it anyway, in case
someone else wants to use it or build upon it. They might not, but doesn't
hurt -- unless you want to keep the code to yourself. The MIT license is
basically a "you can do whatever you want with this" license that I like.
And linking to the github repo in the "About" page on the live site.
It's also always reasonable to slap a README on that says "This is a
passion/hobby/side project, i will probably provide absolutely no
maintenance or support or docs whatsoever, but you are welcome to use the
code if you like."
