Recoll

Recoll

Recoll is a personal full text search tool. It is a full text search application. Full text search applications let you find your data by content rather than by external attributes (like a file name).

Recoll is based on Xapian, a mature open source search engine library that supports advanced features such as phrase and proximity search, relevance feedback, document categorization, boolean queries, and wildcard search. Recoll provides the interface to get data into (indexing) and out (searching) of the system.

Recoll stores all internal data in Unicode UTF-8 format, and it can index files with different character sets, encodings, and languages into the same index. It has input filters for many document types.

The application has many parameters which define exactly what to index, and how to classify and decode the source documents.
