Anyone experience with swish-e

Anyone experience with swish-e
« on: March 04, 2009, 02:29:31 PM »
Need to find a decent intranet spider. Tried to install swish-e as per dag repository, but no success yet...

The source tgz install seems to need also a lot of manual tweaking.

Googled swish-e rpm: http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/swish-e/

Dag is OK so tried to install:
Code: [Select]
yum install swish-e --enablerepo=dag

Swish-e does not seem to be in the repo.

Code: [Select]
yum whatprovides swish --enablerepo=dag only shows wesnoth and themanaworld:

I guess it is not there. But the big Q is: is swish-e worth the effort or has any-one another suggestion?

hi

yes, swish "is" in Dag's repo, but no rpms are available.. there's only a spec file to be used with rpmbuild and the source package, but I see it's very old..

I suggest contacting Dag Wieers then as he is the maintainer of that repo, his site has a way of contacting him IIRC.

Actually I've got it installed, after I found these:
http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/
Not the latest, but for Proof of Concept it should do.
Needed a couple of dependancies which could be solved with the dag repositories.
Next thing I need is configure, but haven't had time yet. Need to read up:
http://swish-e.org/docs/swish-config.html
http://www.adamsdesk.com/be/archives/2008/05/30/how-to-installing-swish-e-v245/

If I get it running, I will write a contrib page. Don't hold your breath though...

If you get it running, at least share the experience here. I am sure that others are interested - I know I am!

Q & Dirty quide: Will write contrib.

--Update---

http://wiki.contribs.org/Swish-e

--Update---

Below Information should be considered outdated!
-----------------------------------------------
Wget all rpm's from http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/

Code: [Select]
wget http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/swish-e-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm
wget http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/swish-e-debuginfo-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm
wget http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/swish-e-devel-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm
wget http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/swish-e-perl-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm
wget http://rpmbuild.joshr.com/swish-e-release/2.4.5-4/centos-4-i386/swish-e-perl-api-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm

Tried:

Code: [Select]
yum localinstall swish-e-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm swish-e-d* swish-e-p* 
Load of dependencies missing, installed them one at a time.
Search the forum how to enable dag's repo.

Code: [Select]
yum install perl-HTML-Template perl-HTML-FillInForm perl-Template-Toolkit --enablerepo=dag

Again:
Code: [Select]
yum localinstall swish-e-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm swish-e-d* swish-e-p* 
Installed swish-e. I now think that installing the above with:
Code: [Select]
yum localinstall swish-e-2.4.5-4.i386.rpm swish-e-d* swish-e-p*  --enablerepo=dag would work also.

swish-e -h should work now.

For filtering .doc .xls and .pdf I installed:
Code: [Select]
yum install perl-Spreadsheet-ParseExcel --enablerepo=dag
yum install perl-MIME-Types --enablerepo=dag
yum install xpdf

Configuration is ongoing. Update will follow.

Thank you for all your work on SWISH-E. Do you know how I can make it index OpenOffice files.

TIA,

You don't need the -devel and -debuginfo packages.

Good work;~) Do you have a wiki example for the 'spidering' of an ibay web site (internet access)?

Although old and in German, perhaps this might help: http://www.linux-magazin.de/heft_abo/ausgaben/2004/04/finden_im_sauseschritt/(offset)/2

or this thread: http://swish-e.org/archive/2003-05/5567.html

Or from a more recent thread (http://swish-e.org/archive/2008-03/12064.html) this script could give you a pointer: http://www.internux.ch/Sharing/swish-e/fserv_spider.txt

Hi ElMarconi

Are you still using swish-e ??

I'd like to start using it but found some problems/doubts (http://forums.contribs.org/index.php/topic,46675.0.html)
and stopped for a while.

Could we work toghether ?


Regards

I'm sorry to say that Swish-e hasn't been used by me anymore lately.
Lazy as I am I tend to fall back to the good old "locate"...
