GUS - Gemini Universal Search
GUS is a search engine for all content served over the Gemini Protocol. It provides both a search interface, so you can look for content within Geminispace by keywords, content types, content sizes, and more. It also provides data on the size and characteristics of Geminispace itself.
If you have questions about or ideas for GUS, please email me at email@example.com.
What's the Gemini Protocol?
Gemini is an application-level internet protocol for the distribution of arbitrary files, with some special consideration for serving a lightweight hypertext format which facilitates linking between files. It's been described as both "the web, stripped right back to its essence" as well as "Gopher, souped up and modernised a little".

What's with the name GUS?
GUS is both an acronym for Gemini Universal Search, as well as a reference to Gus Grissom, one of the early astronauts involved in NASA's Gemini program.
GUS would not be what it is today without much-appreciated contributions and help from the Gemini community!
- Remco (for far too many contributions to list here!)
- Nick Thomas (for helping me figure IPv6 configuration!)
- Solderpunk, Sean Conner, & James Tomasino (for early feedback and brainstorming on how to make GUS useful and usable!)
