🔎 EverythingSearchClient

A .NET client library for Voidtools' Everything search engine, without the native Everything SDK dll.

I wrote this library, because I wanted a managed .NET solution with a simple interface, which would not depend on the native code SDK by Voidtools. I wanted to have one AnyCpu Dll to do the job.

So, this library uses a message-only window and the IPC mechanism to communicate between your application and the Everything service. This way, the dependencies and P/Invoke class are limited to functions of the Windows OS and the official .NET runtime.

Everything service must be running on your machine.


The primary interface is:

SearchClient everything = new();

Result res = everything.Search(".txt");
// search all files/folders with '.txt' in their name (not just as extension)

Console.WriteLine("Found {0} items:", res.NumItems);
foreach (Result.Item item in res.Items)

There are multiple additional, optional parameters and overload variants of that function.
