A better locate tool written in Go
Latest commit c0b57ff Feb 5, 2013 @c9s update readme



golocate is a locate-like tool to build filelist index for searching, which is written in Go with concurrency support.

The difference between locate and golocate is golocate saves your prefered paths, ignore list for indexing, so the indexdb is pretty small for searching, and very easy for updating.

golocate uses separate goroutines to build/search index from custom paths, it's fast enough.


go get github.com/c9s/golocate/goloc

Build index

goloc -build ~/Desktop /usr/local/include /etc

To build index with verbose messages:

goloc -build -v ~/Desktop ~/Downloads

Update index

goloc -update

Search from indexdb

goloc [pattern]
