I would love to use recoll from the GNOME Shell (pressing SUPER key to show the overlay for the native search of my linux OS). Is there any GNOME Shell Extension available - or hope of one being developed?
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
fair point. I dug through the whole extension stuff over the last days. I'll try to implement it myself :-)
If you need any help about recollq, or even changes to it, please don't hesitate to ask !
You probably want to use the -F option to avoid any problem in parsing the output (it prints the values as base64 fields).
Also, obviously, -n for slicing.
This could be a very valuable extension !
Why not Tracker by the way ?
I managed to put something together that works decently on my machine. I appreciate any testing and feedback!
I gave it a try, but it's not quite there yet :)
There is an obvious typo in base64.js: search for faromCharCode (instead of fromCharCode).
Also I think that you need to implement getSubsearchResultSet()
As it is recoll does not appear to be always called with the final state of the user entry (e.g it's called with recol when the entry is recoll).
Finally, I found it easier to write a D-Bus search provider in Python, I think that this will be easier to maintain than a javscript module (with the only constant characteristic of js being to change with every release).
You will find it on the recoll downloads page: https://www.lesbonscomptes.com/recoll/download.html#gssp
