Copper

Description

Create Centillion, the Data Commons search engine. This will allow members of the Commons to easily search and find documents across a variety of collections housed in a variety of places.

What they achieved

Copper produced Centillion (https://github.com/dcppc/centillion), a search engine that can index different kinds of document collections: Google Documents (.docx files), Google Drive files, Github issues, Github files, Github Markdown files, and Groups.io email threads.

Why is this valuable?

Centillion is intended to index information in the Data Commons project and allow people to find the documents they're looking for, discover new documents, and facilitate openness in practice.
