We are proud to announce that the source code for Searchdaimon ES is now open source and freely available on GitHub under the GPL v2 license.
This is an exciting time for us. Together with the open source community we hope we can build one of the best solutions for enterprise search yet.
Searchdaimon ES is a search engine for corporate data and websites. The ES comes with a powerful administrator interface and can index websites and several common enterprise systems like SharePoint, Exchange, SQL databases, Windows file shares etc. The ES supports many data sources (e.g., Word, PDF, and Excel) and the possibility of faceted search, attribute navigation and collection sorting.
The ES is normally deployed as an integrated suite with search software and Linux that one normally run as a virtual machine on cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, on one’s own hardware as a virtual machine using VMware, Xen or VirtualBox or directly on a physical server. The ES is mostly written in C and Perl. The company was founded in 2005.
More information about the product and screenshots are available at the bottom of this post.
We have released all of our source code related to the Searchdaimon enterprise search engine to GitHub, with full commit history. We will be using the GitHub repository internally as our only source code repository from now on. It is currently about 100K lines of code. These is the full source code, tools and build chain to build the ES.
The only exception is that we unfortunately have had to hold on to some related source code that uses proprietary code from 3-partys. However none of thus are essential, and binaries are made freely available for most of it. A list of non-released code is available at: Statement on non-open source code.
