Swish-e is Simple Web Indexing System for Humans - Enhanced. Swish-e can quickly and eas‐ ily index directories of files or remote web sites and search the generated indexes. Swish-e is extremely fast in both indexing and searching, highly configurable, and can be seamlessly integrated with existing web sites to maintain a consistent design. Swish-e can index web pages, but can just as easily index text files, mailing list archives, or data stored in a relational database. Swish is designed to index small to medium sized collection of documents, Although a few users are indexing over a million documents, typical usage is more often in the tens of thousands. Currently, Swish-e only indexes eight bit character encodings.
