1. DESCRIPTION
=======================================

``mmfinder`` is a wrapper to *nix commands like ``locate``, ``updatedb``, ``grep``, ``find`` to help you with searching files across several machines (computers).

Firstly, ``updatedb`` is used by ``mmfinder-deamon`` to create databases. You can define as many "databases" as you want in ``~/.mmfinder-config.py`` file.

The syntax is as follows:

name_of_computer (you can name it as you want!) = {
'name_of_database' : 'path_to_folder_for_database'
}

.. real-world working example ..

computer1 = {
'dropbox' : '/home/magnus/Dropbox',
'debian' : '/home/magnus/',
'StoreJet': '/media/StoreJet',
}

.. for example, if I have the ``StoreJet`` connected to my computer and I run ``mmfinder-deamon``, a database ``StoreJet`` will be created that includes data from ``/media/StoreJet`` directory.

Next, imagine that at work, you will never mount ``StoreJet``, but you want to create a database for your ``/home`` directory at work. You define another computer (for example, ``computer02 ``) as follows..

computer2 = {
'dropbox' : '/home/magnus/Dropbox',
'maximus' : '/home/magnus/',
'truecrypt': '/media/truecrypt1/',
}

My recommendation is to use Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/home) to put your config file there and make a link (`ln -s`) to your home directory and set the path to your databases like `~/Dropbox/opt/mmfinder/db`. You can share your settings and databases among many computer!

You can also use anything else (http://alternativeto.net/software/dropbox/) but then you need slightly change configuration file.

## Bash plugin

What is realy cool about ``mmfinder`` is that you can have pretty nice functionality if you add to your environment ``bash-plugin.sh``. You can g(o) to hit of result, r(un) it, e(emacs it = open in emacs), o(pen it).. see ``bash-plugin.sh``

2. INSTALLATION
=======================================
To install run:

sudo pip install mmfinder
# if you don't have `pip` -> sudo apt-get install python-pip

or

sudo python setup.py install

3. CONFIGURATION
=======================================
Go to ``~/.mmfinder-config.py`` ..

to use ``bash-plugin`` add ..

case $- in *i*)
source /home/magnus/Dropbox/workspace/mmfinder/bash-plugin.sh
esac

.. to your ``.bashrc``

For ``mmfinder-deamon`` you might want to use ``cron`` as follows ..

00 * * * * /usr/local/bin/mmfinder-deamon

4. HOW TO USE IT
=======================================
Start with configuration, then ``mmfinder.py -u`` or ``mmfinder_deamon.py`` and search ..

mmfinder -g .bashrc # search for .bashrc across all defined machines

etc..
