ColourSearch is a image search engine I wrote to expieriment with histogram based image comparison.
How to run
ColourSearch is self hosted (it contains a small web server) and no configuration is needed to run it. By default it will build a database based on the images located in .\public\Content\Images.
To run the application, build it and then run: coloursearch.exe
Then browse to http://localhost:9200
.\coloursearch.exe --help Usage: coloursearch [OPTIONS]+ message Options: -p, --port=VALUE port to run the service on. -d, --database=VALUE database file. -m, --multithreaded run multithreaded server. -i, --images=VALUE images directory. -s, --staticfiles=VALUE static files directory. -r, --rebuild rebuild the database. -h, --help show this message and exit
