Projects / fakedbfs


fakedbfs is a suite of tools and a library for cataloguing files. Anything that is a file can be catalogued along with metadata. The metadata is then searchable through various querying facilities. It runs entirely in userland and was inspired by BFS, which doesn't do content indexing, only metadata.
