Seeks is a Web search proxy, meta-search engine, and real-time P2P pattern matching network for social Web search. Its specific purpose is to regroup users whose queries are similar so they can share both the query results and their experience with these results. On this basis, Seeks allows true real-time, decentralized Web search to emerge. In the long term, there is no need for Web crawlers and third-party Web indexes. Most importantly, Seeks is intended to become a flagship for a fair, transparent, user controlled machinery for searching the Web over the Internet.
The Ex-Crawler Project is divided into three subprojects. The main part is the Ex-Crawler daemon server, a highly configurable and flexible Web crawler written in Java. It comes with its own socket server, with which you can manage the server, users, distributed grid/volunteer computing, and much more. Crawled information is stored in a database (Currently MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MSSQL are supported). The second part is a graphical (Java Swing) distributed grid/volunteer computing client, including user computer state detection, based on JADIF Project. The Web search engine is written in PHP. It comes with a Content Management System, user language detection and multi-language support, and templates using Smarty, including an application framework that is partly forked from Joomla 1.5, so that Joomla components can be adapted quickly.
Arch is an extension of Apache Nutch (a popular, highly scalable general purpose search engine) for intranet search. It includes blind test evaluation tools for comparing to other search engines. Arch has many features critical for corporate environments, such as document level security.
InstaSearch is an Eclipse IDE plug-in for performing quick and advanced searches of source code files. It uses the Apache Lucene library for indexing and fast searching of files in the workspace. The search is performed instantly as you type, and resulting files are displayed in an Eclipse view. Each file then can be previewed using a few of the most closely matching and relevant lines. A double-click on the match leads to the matching line in the file.
