Projects / Docco


Docco is a personal document retrieval tool based on Apache's Lucene indexing engine. It allows you to create an index for files on your file system which you can then search for keywords. It is not only a lot faster than searching by recursing through your file system every time, it also offers you extended query options like wildcards and fuzzy search as well as a visualization of result set intersections.
