Colour Search

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
