    There's an opensource distributed sci-hub like app called sciencefair. It's using the dat protocol. It's working but it hasn't been updated since a year and it doesn't support proxies as sci-hub does to fetch new content directly, here the model is for each user to share their own collection of articles.

  • GitHub repo typesense-js

    JS client for Typesense:

    Project mention: 👋Would anyone be interested in working together on a Rust client library for Typesense (OSS alternative to Algolia / ElasticSearch)? | | 2021-04-21

    The idea is to provide a thin idiomatic wrapper around the Typesense REST API. The most involved part is the retry logic to detect if a node is down and retry the request on another node in the cluster, for high availability. For eg, here's the logic in the JS client. The rest of it is creating one class per API resource and adding appropriate methods.

    Yes, you can download demainstream youtube and that extension will automatically filter out all the mainstream media propaganda in the search results. You can also disable it if you want to temporarily search for a video on like CNN or something.

  • GitHub repo search-bookmarks-history-and-tabs

    Browser extension to search and navigate browser tabs, local bookmarks and history.

    Project mention: Browser extension to (fuzzy) search bookmarks, history and open tabs | | 2021-08-20

    Thanks to your feedback, I've added a new option to display "dateAdded" for bookmarks and two new options how the recentness of dateAdded affects the score. By default this is very low. (It will take a while until this is published at the stores).

    See (first example, and for more details the options.js).

    Regarding the sorting / filtering: I see the value in it, but this would be more work and I want to think it through first. Maybe I'll find the time to add it. If yes, maybe I'll add a "sort" mode that cycles between "score" (default)" "last visited" or "date added". Although only score is available for all types of results.

  • GitHub repo dmt

    dmt engine (pc, server or small computers)

    Project mention: Would like to invite people to check out this approach to search engines | | 2021-06-12

    I agree!! I think the easiest way to share this info in more detail is through video, not possible to do this now but this fall we'll have online meetings with detailed explanations how it works "under the hood" and more polished videos will be available by end of year. Before that I think I can record a simpler type of video that can serve the purpose in meantime.. I'll do it by end of this month. To answer your question quicky: for crawling -- it's just this simple method: ... entire search logic is visible here in dmt/search middleware : .. USP is -- I think visible here: .. can't be summed up in 2 words.
