SDK functions to alter the index

Postby hicla » Mon Dec 04, 2017 8:41 pm

We have an external NAS that publishes a couple of SMB shares through the network.
We'd love to use Everything to quickly find files, but whenever a large quantity of files gets moved/deleted, Everything misses most of these changes (the "rescan on full buffer" option isn't practical in our case, since it takes several hours for the scan to complete).

Would it be possible to add some functions to the Everything SDK to allow us to modify the index?

We would then write an app that monitors the samba log on the NAS, and sends Everything what has changed in near realtime.
The events exposed by the samba log are: folder deleted, folder created, file deleted, file written, file/folder moved (or renamed).

Right now, the only way to do this is would be to generate a file list.

I will be looking into support for plugins in Everything 1.5 for indexing.
