The Tracker project is a open community of developers who maintain an efficient, privacy-respecting desktop search engine, available as Free Software.

We maintain two projects: the filesystem indexer and search engine, Tracker Miner FS, and the database library Tracker SPARQL.

For more details, see the project overview.
