Full-text File Search

If you're using a Pro Edition Server, you can search file and folder names, as well as the content of certain files, in the Seafile web app. Currently Seafile can search the contents of the following types of files:

  • Microsoft Office Doc: .doc, .docx (Pro Edition Server only)
  • Microsoft Office PowerPoint: .ppt, .pptx (Pro Edition Server only)
  • Microsoft Office Excel: .xls, .xlsx (Pro Edition Server only)
  • LibreOffice files
  • PDF files
  • Markdown files: .md
  • Various source code files
  • Text files: .txt, .log

Note that your Seafile system administrator may not have enabled the full-text search feature. In that case, you can only search file and folder names.
