Searching for SlackBuilds Just Got Better

March 10, 2007 at 2:25 am Leave a comment

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to work on SINP (SINP Is Not Portage), but I managed to finally get some time in today. The next release of SINP (alpha 2) will be completely different from its predecessor, especially how flags tell SINP what to do.

I started by cleaning up SINP’s search ability. You can now use 3 different methods for searching. (hopefully 4 when I’m done) You can crawl an FTP site (the current way) and search for SlackBuilds by name, you can search using their sites search engine (which is way faster and allows searching using keywords), or you can search for SlackBuilds on the local machine using the find command. I haven’t figured out how to search http:// repos yet, but that will come when I find out how. I have a little bit more code clean up before the new searching makes into the final script, but it shouldn’t take too much longer.
