looqs - FTS for the Linux desktop with previews for search results
looqs creates a full text search index for your files. It allows you to look at previews where your search terms have been found, as shown in the screenshots below.
Last version: 2022-0X-XX, v0.1
Please see Changelog for a human readable list of changes.
Goals and principles
- Find & Preview. Instead of merely telling you where your search phrase has been found, it should also render the corresponding portion/pages of the documents and highlight the searched words.
- No daemons. As some other desktop search projects are prone to have annoying daemons running that eat system resources away, this solution should make do without daemons where possible.
- Easy setup. Similiarly, there should be no need for heavy-weight databases. Instead, this solution tries to squeeze out the most from simple approaches. In particular, it relies on sqlite.
- GUI & CLI. Provide CLI interfaces and GUI interfaces
- Sandboxing. As reading and rendering lots of formats naturally opens the door for security bugs, those tasks are offloaded to small, sandboxed sub-processes to mitigate the effect of exploited vulnerabilities.
Linux (on amd64) is currently the main focus. Currently, I don't plan on supporting anything else and the sandboxing architecture does not make it likely. I suppose a version without sandboxing might be conceivable for other platforms, but I have no plans or resources to actively target anything but Linux at this point.
Fow now, github issues and pull-requests are preferred, but you can also just email your patches or issues to : looqs at quitesimple.org
