Qsirch: improve support to epub files

Post by yuchen » Mon Apr 13, 2020 12:42 am

Qsirch can search the content of epub files, but it doesn't work as well as pdf files.

It would be great if Qsirch can:

1. show epub covers in search results
2. support epub preview, just like pdf preview: preview the file, as well as look over the related paragraph
3. set epub as a independent file type, then you can limit search result to epub files

feature request send here

until then you can qsirch fine the epub file, open file location and open the epub using the appropriate app to view it.

when browsing from pc i use sumatrapdf
SumatraPDF is a multi-format (PDF, EPUB, MOBI, FB2, CHM, XPS, DjVu) reader for Windows under (A)GPLv3 license, with some code under BSD license (see AUTHORS).

so for now you can search epub by filename, and view it's entirety that way. until they decide to let qsirch read contents and search by viewing the contents of epubs, and also offering a preview mode in qsirch :'

Thanks for your suggestion! Already sent request on service.

I tried Search QNAP NAS files directly on a Mac (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4KR_E4qBBo), it can search the full content, however doesn't display the paragraph related with query keyword. So far now, search in qsirch or on mac both have their limitations.

Hope they decide to improve Qsirch.
