Zim

Offline index

Asked by Claudio Barreto on 2017-04-16

Everytime Zim is started, it creates the index file (index.db). Is this correct ?

If correct, is it possible to prevent this function (I would prefer to simply reload an index.db file previously created, to improve Zim performance - It takes a long time to build the tree structure).

Thanks in advance.

This is partly correct. If there is an index file that is still up to date
the only thing that zim does is run a check on sub folders to detect new
files, rest of the index is re-used. If it runs a full index each time it
might be some error that makes the index invalid.

Next release will be less computation intensive for the index checking,
probably that helps as well in your case.
