Gemini Universal Search (GUS)


  1. Install python (>3.5) and poetry
  2. Run: poetry install

Making an initial index

Make sure you have some gemini URLs for testing which are nicely sandboxed to avoid indexing huge parts of the gemini space.

  1. Create a "seed-requests.txt" file with you test gemini URLs
  2. Run: poetry run crawl -d
  3. Run: poetry run build_index -d

Now you'll have created directory, rename it to index.

Running the frontend

  1. Run: poetry run serve
  2. Navigate your gemini client to: "gemini://localhost/"

Running the frontend in production with systemd

  1. update infra/gus.service to match your needs (directory, user)
  2. copy infra/gus.service to /etc/systemd/system/
  3. run systemctl enable gus and systemctl start gus

Running the crawl to update the index

  1. Run: poetry run crawl
  2. Run: poetry run build_index
  3. Restart frontend

Running the crawl & indexer in production with systemd

  1. update infra/gus-crawl.service & infra/gus-index.service to match your needs (directory, user)
  2. copy both files to /etc/systemd/system/
  3. set up a cron job for root with the following params: 0 9 */3 * * systemctl start gus-crawl --no-block

Running the test suite

Run: poetry run pytest
