To further explain my setup, I have three libraries of files Personal, Technical and Business. Personal is all personal data including Org files, Technical is all whitepapers and vendor documentation, and Business is Org projects and other matters. Recoll is used to search all of them. In my

I had a quick look at the recoll and I notice that there is a python API to update/create index. Maybe something could be developped using the python package recently released by Karl Voit, to feed a recoll index with org data. Roland. Roland Everaert writes: > Good to know, I will have a look
