Gophew

Gopher crawler and search-enabled server powered by Pituophis.

crawler.py

This script creates the searchable database and outputs it as JSON. Edit settings inside the script.

###########################

settings = {
    'limit_host': 'your.live.host',  # Host to limit to (for indexing single servers, which is highly recommended)
    'only_record_host': True,
    'path_must_start_with': '/',  # What the path/selector must start with
    'db_filename': 'db.json',  # Filename to use for the database
    'delay': 2,  # x second delay between grabbing files; please be courteous to servers you don't own! 
    'crawl_url': 'gopher://your.live.host/1/',  # URL to crawl (after finished updating the index)
    'cooldown': 86400,  # Required cooldown in ms before crawling a URL again
    'ignore_types': ['i', '3']  # Types of items that should be ignored and not recorded
}
