lspace - A personal digital library framework
It is a simple thing right now:
Storage of files of any kind into an
sqlitedatabase, keyed by the SHA256 hash of their contents.
This automatically deduplicates identical files.
User- and application-specified tagging of the stored files.
Searching for files by tags (presence, values).
That is it.

Q & A

Intended use cases at the beginning of the project:
Store my email, have the store searchable.
- Email "Folders" become labels on the mail.
- Mail headers are used for tags, again for searching.
Issue here: No free-form content search however. (Yet?)
Store my photos, searchable again
- Exif data expressed as tags.
- Manual tagging for content (subject(s), location(s), ...)
Issue here: My pictures take about 400G. (Stored in Timeline/y/m/d hierarchy, i.e. no duplicates). This will be a very big sqlite database. Maybe only use it as index, and keep the files in the filesystem ?
