Eyebrowse: A Java Servlet/Velocity-based browser for Unix
mbox format mail archives
Eyebrowse is a web-based mailing list archive browser. Eyebrowse
differs from other popular archive browsers in that it does not
require that mailing lists be exploded into individual HTML files, and
that the HTML rendering is done at serving time, rather than at the
time the message is received, to allow for easy customization of the
message display. HTML rendering is performed via the Velocity template
Eyebrowse was commissioned by CollabNet, and originally developed
by Quiotix Corporation.
The goal of the Eyebrowse project is to provide a way to browse
email mailing list archives in a way that is:
Scalable to millions of messages
Easily customizable, especially in its look and feel
Reliable in actual use, including protecting against malicious or
malformed HTML code
Eyebrowse has the following components:
- A set of Java programs for managing Eyebrowse mailing lists and
indexing messages in mailing lists
- A set of Java servlets for retrieving, browsing, navigating, and
searching Eyebrowse mailing lists
- A MySQL database, which
stores message index data (message data is stored in standard mbox
- A Lucene text
index, for facilitating fast text searches (optional)
