[VERY EARLY DEV] Search my logseq notes while searching in Google

This project is in VERY EARLY DEVELOPMENT! I’m just too happy to share my first milestone with you, while it’s far away from the first release.

Hello, I’m trying to develop a plugin for logseq - fireSeqSearch. It is inspired by Evernote’s browser extension - if we search something, for example, softmax, the extension will also do this search against the personal notebook.

This is what fireSeqSearch does on my logseq notebook. It has two parts:

  1. search server, which will host all logseq pages on http://127.0.0.1:3030
  2. Browser extension, which will attach hits in logseg, and append it to the web page.

This screenshot is an example

:heart_eyes: Such a great idea! Can’t wait to give it a try!

Really similar to @karlicoss’s project “Promnesia” ?

Thank you for sharing promnesia! Looks a really interesting project

I had a quick look on this project, and I think promnesia is trying to archive a higher and bigger goal. I think I would still spend some time on fireLogSeq - which only focus on search engine enhancement with logseq data. Unless I saw a simple workflow to combine promnesia and logseq

Yes, clearly the objective is a bit broader. However, it integrates well with any text file which makes it very interesting for use with Logseq.
Your project is interesting (and I’m very interested … I’ll try too) and I pointed to this project because I know that @karlicoss is also a Logseq contributor and might be interested. :wink:

And an other question. Did you plan to package this for chromium-like browser ?

Short answer is, why not?

A longer answer is, it’s too early to talk about it at this stage. Currently, my code ( GitHub - Endle/fireSeqSearch: When using search engine, it would also search local logseq notebook ) is too hacky and not suitable for uploading my first release. When I finished a few Firefox releases and they look good to me, I think I would have a try on chrome extension

My pre-alpha extension has been approved by Mozilla. If you’re interested, you can try it following this guide (need rust 1.55+)

git clone https://github.com/Endle/fireSeqSearch
Edit run_server.sh, pointing it to your local logseq notebook path
Execute run_server.sh
Install web extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fireseqsearch/
