A Recoll Firefox Extension
This project supports a Firefox extension that provides the capability to include the web pages visited in the Firefox browser in the text search index of the Recoll text search tool. These web pages will then be returned as part of the results of searches performed with Recoll.
Recoll is a desktop text search tool for Linux created by Jean-Francois Dockès. Recoll has, for some time now, supported the use of a Firefox extension originally created for the Beagle desktop search engine, taking over and consuming the output of that extension to index web pages visited in Firefox. A problem arose when that Beagle extension stopped working with the more recent releases of Firefox. Compounding that problem is the fact that Beagle itself has disappeared from the web, leaving us without support for its associated Firefox extension. This Recoll extension then is an attempt to address these problems. It takes Toa Fei’s original Beagle extension and updates it to work with Recoll and the latest Firefox browsers. It also makes cosmetic changes to brand the extension as a Recoll-specific extension.
There is no formal support for this code. I will provide "best-effort" support in as far as my real life will allow. I use the discussion forum and the bug tracking system here on SourceForge for these purposes. Please make use of them if you have problems or questions.
