What are our other options ? Using a lucene-like full text engine ?
unfortunately no python version exist for it, and is it worth the
overhead ? Using any custom full text engine written in python, i've
looked at pyndex, but it seems not very operational. Another option
would be to make a gnome-data-server, that maintains what we want,
like .desktop indexes, and epiphany bookmarks. Suggestions ?
My tracker project (http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Software_2fTracker)
should be able to handle that. Tracker is a medusa replacement for
Nautilus/Gnome-VFS and also a general purpose metadata server and
indexing framework. It indexes, extracts metadata and generates
thumbnails on the fly in response to file change notifications from
Tracker is still under developement and for 2.14 I am hoping to
optionally integrate Tracker into Nautilus (for metadata and search) and
possibly Gnome-VFS to get Vfolders style functionality.
So as my work is cut out for me, I probably wont be able to provide what
you want in the 2.14 timeframe but for 2.16 it should be realistic.
