I set up a search engine for the I2P network.


It only indexes eepsites -- no .onions, no clearnet sites.

It already runs several days and works reasonably good (well, sometimes a bit shaky, I admit...)

I prepared this for my research since it seems most of the other search engines have been dead since ca. 2016, but you are more than welcome to use it.


* YaCy-based
* Only accessible via I2P - so you keep being anonymous and this site cannot get any private information
* The index is updated at least once a day (I am still tweaking the schedule)
* Respects robots.txt
* Support multiple languages

I also cooked up Terms of Service-ish stuff: http://legwork.i2p/AboutDisclaimer.html. I appreciate if you could proofread and improve.

Thanks, already book Mark and backup it , suggest the base32 domain contact list as well

After a few search , the results Change to display one hundred, the language mix with different languages, the data depecated, some eep site was disconnected and request login information to access

As the underground non clean net SEO search engine optimisation

We suggest to hss3uro2fsfq dot onion related that Search engine is much better to counter Google trend and yahoo news

This is a great search engine that actually works and is fast as well. I have been trying to find a decent search engine to lookup certain (sealed) information and/or case laws that are much difficult, or maybe impossible to find on clearnet.

However, after a few days of no luck, I found this thread, and thankfully, I was able to find this: "http://cases.i2p/en/country-united-states-s/";, which does in fact look promising, but I can't seem to find a solution to "The website was not reachable".

If you guys don't mind, I would like to ask you if you can assist me with this issue. I've had my connection (fast/high bandwidth) open for a few hours, with hundreds of peers and tunnels, yet, whenever I click on a specific state or search something within cases.i2p, it takes forever to load then I get the unreachable message referenced above. Assuming the website is functioning properly, so as my router/connection, therefore, what could possibly be the issue here?

Another thing that I have been trying to figure out for the past month without any luck is the grep command in terminal. I figured this is a dev forum, so someone here must know the answer to the following question; I'm trying to search a specific word through 7,800+ files (pdf/doc). To obtain relevant results, I would usually use the command to search the Spotlight database (index) which is mdfind. Out of 7500 case files, mdfind picked those 40 or so which contained one certain word. As you probably know, mdfind is the backend of Spotlight search, which means that spotlight must index the system before displaying any relevant results.

What I'm trying to accomplish is to find a way to use grep/find/locate that would function as mdfind, but without "indexing" the system. Our network has about 6 shared drives and 4 users with access to those drives. So its very difficult to index such a large database with over 8 TB and 80,000+ pdf/doc files. If, for example, I want to find all files pertaining to a client with last name Kennedy, I use "mdfind kennedy" with return results such as:
/Volumes/Net01/Users/Civil Lit/Documents/E. Qualified Private Benefits.pdf

Would you kindly recommend a better way to search those words (or names) in pdf/word files throughout multiple drives/folders, that would generate better results than mdfind? I have tried to run the commands below without any success, either the output results didn't match the keyword or displayed no results at all.
Running GNU grep 3.1 on OSX
grep -wirl "word" ./*
grep -wirln "word" ./*.pdf
grep -rlEwi "word" ./
find . | grep "word"

Any help would be much appreciate it.

Thank you for using legwork.i2p. I updated the OS and I2P (now 0.9.37) on the machine I run it. I guess it works, but please let me know if you experience any problem.

BTW, legwork.i2p currently indexes over 60,000 documents.
