Awesome, I loved Beagle, and the bit of Dashboard that managed to

Please take a look at my fork at
if you are still in love with this project.

Is there a reason you couldn't build this on top of Tracker?  Just
asking.  Tracker does very good indexing and is pretty well supported -
and it is packaged.

Somehow the whole Dashboard concept seems to languish.  Zeitgeist and
GNOME Activity Journal filled much of the concept that Dashboard meant
to accomplish - but sadly that has fallen into disrepair as well -
frustrating as they boosted my productivity and I used them every day.
I just don't understand how these tools don't grab any attention.  Oh,
well, I guess that is just how it is [Beagle written in C#, then Tracker
written in C, then Zeitgeist written in Python, then ported to
Vala, .... ugh, such a terribly amount of re-effort].  Sorry, that
became a rant I.

Also, I have wrote a beagrep which can grep 9G of android source code
in 0.3 second. I use a modified version of beagle first to find out
which files contained the words I want to search, then I grep only
these files. Please take a look at this project at . I wrote an blog article about
beagrep at .
