Search content into friends' document repositories

Postby bitozoid » Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:36 pm

From a list of available files to share, a search index of the content would be created. If we search for some content, the query is sent to the available search indexes of every friend (and ours). Answers are collected, organized and shown. This way we could find interesting content and ask for permissions to download.

Kind of a social-oriented content search engine.

This is already available. Make sure “Browsable files” is ticked in the search panel.

Does this search into the contents of the files? Like regain, docfetcher or recoll? What file extensions are available?

Is it possible to share only the content search results, not the files?

Ah, I misunderstood. No, the contents of shared files are not indexed.

Rethinking. It would work like a google MapReduce.
