Visit http://www.seeks-project.info for more information on the project.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Content

- a web proxy,
- a websearch meta search engine that aggregates results and ranks them
  based on consensus.
- a plugin system and a set of default plugins, including websearch and
  ad blocking plugins.
- a P2P collaborative filter that enables decentralized collaborative
  searching and sharing.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Installation

Dependencies:
- libcurl
- libxml2
- libpcre
- tokyo cabinet

- libevent (optional, 2.x preferred)
- opencv (optional)
- docbook2x-man (optionnal)

From the root directory, run
./autogen.sh
./configure
make

Compilation options can be listed with ./configure --help

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Running Seeks

This is an early version of Seeks, it is recommended your run it from the
repository you compiled it from.

cd src
./seeks

see ./seeks --help for options.

For example, by default seeks does not run as a daemon. If you would like
to have it so, run ./seeks --daemon

Other important options can be modified in the configuration file, src/config

By default, seeks runs as proxy on the local machine (127.0.0.1) on port 8250.
If you would like to change it, do it in the configuration file, src/config

Once started, to use seeks, tell your web browser to connect to the Internet
through seeks' web proxy.

If you'd like to use your seeks node through the API, you'll find
details here:
http://seeks-project.info/wiki/index.php/API-0.4.0

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
