Add a fully searchable index to your eBooks

James Hale is developing a search and annotation tool for ePubs in LiveCode. It will be just like getting all your ePub books indexed even when the book doesn't have an index itself.

It uses the XML and SQLITE libraries that are part of Livecode to read in an ePub and uses the full text search capabilities of SQLITE to perform near instantaneous text searches. The screenshot shows the search panel after three words have been entered and one possible combination chosen to display.
