Improve Baloo Search

completed by: Levente Kurusa

mentors: Vishesh Handa

BalooSearch is a simple command line utility to search through Baloo. Currently, it just shows the top 10 results. While this is convenient, it could be made to show more. It additionally also only shows file results.

Improve BalooSearch by adding the following -

- Add a --limit or -l option to let the client set the limit.

- Add a --offset or -o option.

- Add a --type or -t option to let the user specify the type of data being search

- Add a convenient -e option to search through emails
