Pinot is a D-Bus service that crawls, indexes your documents, and monitors them for changes. It is also a GTK-based user interface that enables you to query the index built by the service or your favorite Web engine, and display and analyze the results. It makes full use of advanced indexing and search facilities offered by Xapian, features language detection, dynamic document summaries, easy labelling of documents, and internal support for common file types. The D-Bus interface allows easy integration with other applications.
Basenji is an indexing and search tool designed for easy and fast indexing of media collections. Once indexed, removable media such as CDs and USB sticks can be browsed and searched for specific files very quickly, without actually being connected to the computer. Besides file hierarchies and audio track listings, Basenji also presents extracted metadata (image dimensions, mp3 tags etc.) and content previews of indexed media in a clean and straightforward user interface.
