< Amarok | Archives Proposal for a new search interface As the creator and maintainer of Yammi I received very positive feedback to Yammi's fuzzy search feature (ie. the search is - to a certain extent - tolerant against a misspelled search term or misspelled tags). Because I (and apparently other people too) would like to see that feature in amarok I started to look at amarok's source code and tried to integrate the very same algorithm I used in Yammi into amarok, but in a way that is "amarok-ish"... On this page I would like to discuss how a similar feature could be integrated into amarok, the discussion with the amarok developers has started... In the discussion with the amarok developers it turned out, that the idea I have in mind actually consists of two (closely related) features: making the current filter fuzzy, see Fuzzy Filter adding a new search interface which shows search results of different types in a smart way (which can be fuzzy or not). Distinction between a new fuzzy search and the existing collection/playlist filter scope of search collection filter works only on collection fuzzy search can (in future) also find playlists, radiostreams, lyrics, websites, google music search results, ... primary use cases collection filter browse collection (tree view with no filter set) simple search for artist, title, album, or any other field... complex filtering (score>60), google-like AND/OR combinations, exclude primary use case fuzzy search search for a certain artist, title or album (possibly where the name of title/artist/album may not be fully known, or known how it is spelled) Retrieved from "https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=Amarok/Archives/Proposals/New_Search_Interface&oldid=28087" This page was last edited on 14 December 2012, at 11:00.
