jujusearch: my toy tool to find quickly files

This is just a toy front-end to Tokyo Dystopia (see there http://1978th.net/tokyodystopia/). There is one tool to index files in the database, a command line and gui tool to query the TD database. The software is very very simple, and thanks to TD its very fast and useful (at least for me ;-) ).

So why coding this ? Because, “find” is very nice but accessing all directories of any filesystem is both time and energy consumming. TD brings almost “instantaneous” search of files, this enables things that you cannot do in general.

Performances: on my 5 years old laptop, it takes less than 3 minutes to index the 240K files of my home directory, and it takes less than 4 seconds to list all of them “./search / | wc -l” … imagine just 4 seconds. This is very fast and the software is so-simple.

There is one tool called: indexer.
