Some metrics about Pinot's source code.

The following applications are not related in any way to Pinot, but complement it nicely.

  • ScrapBook, a Firefox extension that helps you to save Web pages and manage the collection.
    I use ScrapBook to capture interesting Web pages I come across while browsing and have set Pinot to index and monitor my ScrapBook directory.

    If you want to take a peek at Pinot's historical data in ~/.pinot/history and ~/.pinot/history-daemon, this is for you.
