Ahmia is a working search engine that indexes, searches, and catalogs content published on Tor Hidden Services. Furthermore, it is an environment to share meaningful insights, statistics and news about the Tor network itself. In this context, there is a lot of work to do.

During GSoC, I plan to work on several aspects of this search engine from fixing bugs to improving search results.

First I’m going to start working on bugs and automation so users and developers can see immediate results and so I can learn my way around the codebase quickly.

Then I will start developing new features like search commands, additional search results information (like screenshots). I will also work a lot on improving the search results.

Finally I will work on statistics which is not an easy problem when you also want to respect privacy.

I also have a couple ideas for optional goals or additional projects I could make after GSoC is done.
