Pinot

Metasearch desktop application

Pinot is a metasearch tool for the Free Desktop built around the Xapian Information Retrieval library, the language guessing functionality of libtextcat and the GTKmm toolkit. It enables one to query sources, display as well as analyze and locally index the returned results. Supported sources are search plugins, either Open Search Description XML or Sherlock files as used by FireFox, the Google SOAP API and Xapian indexes (local or remotely served by xapian-tcpsrv). Supported document types include plain text, HTML, PDF, RTF, MS Word, XML, OpenDocument/StarOffice, mbox, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis. It is expected that more formats will be supported through plugins as the project matures. The main goal is to make all these search engines easily available to the end-user. The second goal is to harness Xapian (and maybe other Information Retrieval toolkits in the future) to index the user's personal documents. Pinot is moving towards what Beagle and Kat do, while still retaining a focus on metasearch. All code is covered by the GNU GPL. The author is Fabrice Colin
