Sometimes I do not remember the name of a command or want to discover a new command. In these cases, full text search might help.

I think it is good idea.Maybe use CLucene or Xapian.

Looks like CLucene has been abandoned, but there's LucenePlusPlus.

I am not sure about the best FTS option yet.

👍 Not sure how to handle full text search, though. 😖

Zero progress here. Not sure if this is something worth looking into at this point.

Closed #288 also suggests to support logical expressions in search queries.

The Zeal is a awesome project, thanks!

A crazy idea: use the libzim instead of the sqlite.
The advantage is that libzim saves content in compressed form and has support for Xapian.
This also makes it possible to view files from the Kiwix project in the Zeal. :-)

@data-man "instead of" isn't an option, since Zeal doesn't define the format it reads... it just provides a non-MacOS option for all the bundles offered by the Dash documentation browser.

"In addition to" is possible, but, given how many pending feature requests there still are to improve the experience with the existing format support, it's just not practical.
