omindex(1) Index static website data via the filesystem




omindex - Index static website data via the filesystem

DIRECTORY is the directory to start indexing from.

BASEDIR is the directory corresponding to URL (default: DIRECTORY).


-d, --duplicates
set duplicate handling ('ignore' or 'replace')
-p, --no-delete
skip the deletion of documents corresponding to deleted files (--preserve-nonduplicates is a deprecated alias for --no-delete)
-e, --empty-docs=ARG
how to handle documents we extract no text from: ARG can be index, warn (issue a diagnostic and index), or skip. (default: warn)
path to database to use
-U, --url=URL
base url BASEDIR corresponds to (default: /)
-M, --mime-type=EXT:TYPE
assume any file with extension EXT has MIME Content-Type TYPE, instead of using libmagic (empty TYPE removes any existing mapping for EXT)
-F, --filter=M[,[T][,C]]:CMD
process files with MIME Content-Type M using command CMD, which produces output (on stdout or in a temporary file) with format T (Content-Type or file extension; currently txt (default) or html) in character encoding C (default: UTF-8). E.g. -Fapplication/octet-stream:'strings -n8' or -Ftext/x-foo,,utf-16:'foo2utf16 %f %t'
-l, --depth-limit=LIMIT
set recursion limit (0 = unlimited)
-f, --follow
follow symbolic links
-i, --ignore-exclusions
ignore meta robots tags and similar exclusions
-S, --spelling
index data for spelling correction
-m, --max-size
maximum size of file to index (in bytes or with a suffix of 'K'/'k', 'M'/'m', 'G'/'g') (default: unlimited)
-E, --sample-size=SIZE
maximum size for the document text sample (supports the same formats as --max-size). (default: 512)
-T, --title-size=SIZE
maximum size for the document title (supports the same formats as --max-size). (default: 128)
-R, --retry-failed
retry files which omindex failed to extract text from on a previous run
sleep for SECS seconds before opening each directory - sleeping for 2 seconds seems to reliably work around problems with indexing files on Microsoft DFS shares.
-C, --track-ctime
track each file's ctime so we can detect changes to ownership or permissions.
-v, --verbose
show more information about what is happening
create the database anew (the default is to update if the database already exists)
-s, --stemmer=LANG
set the stemming language (default: english). Possible values: arabic armenian basque catalan danish dutch earlyenglish english finnish french german german2 hungarian italian kraaij_pohlmann lovins norwegian porter portuguese romanian russian spanish swedish turkish (pass 'none' to disable stemming)
-h, --help
display this help and exit
-V, --version
output version information and exit
