Dowser project consists of a Web research and archiving tool.

Dowser is a Web research and archiving tool that clusters results from search engines, associates words that appear in previous searches, and keeps a local cache of all the results you click on in a searchable database along with summaries and links to related information.

It helps you to keep track of what you find, with no advertising.


Python 2.3 or higher
sqlite 2.6 or higher

Running From Source

Make sure you have built and installed Python and sqlite and the pysqlite bridge.
(The source zip comes with a precompiled Mac library for sqlite/pysqlite).

cd into the main directory and run :

# python

What's New in This Release:

There are now editable search filters, such as "no shopping" and "no blogs".
Dowser is now a true metasearcher. This version adds Teoma to the search engine list; there is also a working German translation (many thanks to Guido & Felix). Since T & G are about the only major engines that don't get their databases from somewhere else, I don't have any to add. If anyone has suggestions for their favorite search engines (perhaps language- or subject-specific), please email me.
Added options to allow remote clients.
