Description:

Recoll is a personal full text search tool for Unix/Linux.

It is based on the very strong Xapian backend.

It provides an easy to use, feature-rich interface with a Qt GUI.

Most common document types are supported are supported along with their compressed versions (Text, HTML, PDF, Dvi, PostScript, Openoffice, Lyx, Scribus, Word/Excel/PPT, Abiword, Kword, Wordperfect, RTF, djvu, gaim logs, maildir and mailbox mail folders including attachments, misc media files).

Powerful query facilities are provided from simple keyword entry to assisted boolean query building with proximity clauses, filtering on file types or location. A Xesam-compatible query language also supports field searches, and date filtering.

Multiple character sets are supported. Internal processing and storage uses Unicode UTF-8.

Recoll has few dependancies. No database daemon, Web server, or exotic language/framework is necessary. In the default setup, it only runs on your system when you need it. Indexing can be performed in batch mode or in real time.

Thanks to Xapian, indexing does not tax system resources excessively and searching is very fast.




Changelog:

Latest 1.19 is 1.19.13: this hopefully fixes the last remaining bug in the multithreading code, which was causing quite rare, but ennoying crashes. You definitely want to upgrade to this version if you are running recoll 1.19.

Release 1.19 brings faster indexing for multiprocessors, new results management features (multiple attachment saves, duplicates listing), advanced search history storage, and other performance and usability enhancements. Also, a nice new PPT filter, Python 3 compatibility, and, for Ubuntu Users a Scope for the Dash on Saucy and Trusty.

Release 1.18.1 brings optional case- and diacritics-sensitive searches, complex search history, direct access to hit pages for PDF documents.

Release 1.17.3 brings a number of usability improvement: management of indexing operations from the GUI, filtering on file size, extended directory filtering, Ubuntu Unity Lens, thumbnails in result lists, Okular notes and Gnumeric filters, etc.

Release 1.16.2 brings a long list of small improvements and bug fixes. Image previews, negative directory filtering, anchored searches, more popup menu entries, etc. Please check the release notes for details (http://www.recoll.org/release-1.16.html).

Release 1.15 (.9): Enhanced native Qt 4 user interface (no more Qt 3 compatibility). Switchable table-like display for the results. Direct access to sort functions. Negative directory filtering. Web archive formats.

Release 1.14 (.3): Modification date searches and filtering. New GNU info filter. Improved Thunderbird mail indexing. Other small bug fixes. date searches and filtering, arbitrary email header indexing, new audio tag extractor based on the Mutagen Python library, and miscellaneous other improvements.

Release 1.13 (.04): New class of persistent filters and indexed file types: zip, chm, ics. Improved big text files handling, Firefox visited pages indexing. Quite a few other performance and usability improvements.

Release 1.12: new KDE KIO slave module, collapsing of identical results, context-sensitive F1 help, saving email attachments and other embedded documents to files, and other small improvements and bug fixes.

Release 1.11: easy filtering of results by document type, nicer previews which use html when possible, python programming interface for indexing and searching, better support for the Xesam user query language, new filter framework, better support for arbitrary field indexing and searching.

Release 1.10:
- Created mailing-list to improve support. Check home page.
- Fixed openSuse 11 compile issues.
- Fixed bug in interpreting email mime structure, which resulted in base-64 decoding errors.
- Fixed "Prev" button in preview window. Would actually go forward when walking the search terms.
- Allow setting the highlight color for search terms in result list and preview
- Added svg filter
- Ensure that in case the data of a file can't be indexed because of some error, at least the file name is indexed.
- Improve query language to support OR queries of terms with field specifications (ie: title:someterm OR author:someauthor).
- Fix filename search to split patterns on white space, so that a "*.jpg *.jpeg" search does what's expected. Means you now need to use double-quotes if there is actual embedded white space.
- Jump directly to the external editor choice dialog instead of opening preferences when an external viewer is not found.
- Allow stopping indexing through menu action (only works with qt4 for now).
- Create an "indexedmimetypes" configuration variable to allow explicitely restricting the file types which do get indexed.
- Adds support for CJK text, and a GUI configuration tool for the main configuration file.

Release 1.9: This release brings a number of small practical improvements: new filters: Wordperfect, Abiword, Kword, jpeg, flac, ogg; better control of disk and memory usage during indexing; improved abstract generation; arbitrary field support; improved qt4 support; and miscellaneous user interface improvements and bug fixes, described in more detail in the Changes file.

 Superb Search Tool !

 
 by hasinasi on: Sep 20 2007
 
Score 63%

I've recently changed from Windows to Kubuntu. I tried beagle, I tried strigi, I tried google desktop search. Non of the search tools were even close to what I wanted.
I was so frustrated that I already tried to run old versions of CopernicDesktopSearch (the tool I liked best when I ran Windows) in Wine. But now the pain is over! Recoll is so much better
than any of those other solutions! I haven't used it a lot, but it looks extremely powerful, so far! Give it a try.

There is a KIO slave in the current version. I don't find it extremely useful, but I'd gladly welcome comments (email me at jfd@recoll.org).

You need to build from source, the instructions for building the slave are inside the source tree:

 Using Qt3?

 
 by molecule-eye on: Jan 11 2010
 
Score 63%

I just installed from the Kubuntu PPA Recoll 1.13.01 (and Xapian 1.0.17) and the interface appears to be Qt3, which obviously doesn't match with the rest of my KDE4.3 desktop. I notice on Recoll's website that it uses Qt4 (or CAN) and there are even pretty screenshots of a Qt4-looking Recoll. So why is mine so ugly?

Sorry I did not answer this, I don't seem to get email when comments are added. I think that the current PPA versions for recent Ubuntu releases use qt4. If the package for your release is based on qt3 (I'm a bit too conservative sometimes), you'll have to build from source.

Cheers,

 Backend, Runners, Etc.

Recoll is the only one which does not slow down my old PIII clunker. I do not dare try to run nepomuk and strigi, the kde4 resource hawgs. Those kde4 daemons are crippling.

So ... I am sure I am not the only one who would like to use recoll INSTEAD of the above. I will likely roll my own runner using the CLI and parsing its output when I have time to devote to it. Some .so based backends would be nice, even a library to directly access recoll's/xapian's data.

Probably the best approach for custom search interfaces would be to use the Python API which can access most, if not all, Recoll functionality (and I'm willing to extend it). Of course there is a .so with a C++ api behind this, but I think that the C++ api is quite unwieldy and it would be better to use the Python one.
(and sorry I did not answer earlier, I rarely look at this page, and don't get email when comments are added).

The recoll runner is posted on this site so give it a try!

I used C++ and I run the recoll CLI. Might try to lift code from recoll sources sometime for direct calls but this might not be a great advantage.

Python scripting is an alternative and is safer since it will not slam plasma in a clinch. However, having to keep interpreters or vm's (Java) resident full time would seem to me too heavy a hit for spot-usage runners or plasmoids.

Parsing recollq text output from a C++ program must not be fun, there would be a point in using the internal APIS. If you just look at the code in recollq.cpp (or the Python C++ module), you get a relatively safe/stable api because I'd have to change recollq + the php/python/kioslave and whatever other modules if I touched it.

I'll try the recoll runner !

You can get in touch with me at jfd at recoll. org if you want.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
