I re-implemented the DBus service in a Zim plugin to have access to the internals. However, the descriptors for the DBus service and search provider still need to be installed, so it is not a simple python source file.
If you installed the previous version, please uninstall it before installing the new one. For Arch Linux users, I created an AUR package zimsearch-git. User visible changes: - Asking for more results works as supposed. - It is also faster to show the results. Planned improvements: - Asynchronous implementation for the DBus service methods (should improve responsiveness when searching large notebooks). 2014-09-28 9:57 GMT-03:00 Davi <dsbo...@gmail.com>: > My initial plan was to make a plugin, but now I think it is not possible > to transform this in a "pure" plugin for Zim because of the integration > with shell.
