            >find -iregex
            that it supremely moronic
            the regex needs to match everything from './' to the end of the line
            if you have files whose filenames or directory contain 'keyword', find -regex 'keyword' won't find them

            findg(){ find -regextype egrep -iregex ".*$query.*"
            unless you're piping it to grep so you can use optionally use other grep flags like -C and such, which hey, fair enough.

            ah frick forgot to put a semicolon and curly brace at the end

            still no because I use '.ext$' a lot of the time
            anyway I don't fricking care, I'm using what's more practical to me. I don't have voices in my head tell me I have to use only 1 stupid command for no reason at all.

            you didn't even put parentheses around $query you lazy frick. what if I search for 'this|that' ?

            just write the whole command at that point

            Nobody needs regex, it's fricking bloat and slow.

            find is bloat, use du

          Just rg instead

          Reindex every time on start. Slower than windows on HDD for me.

          I use that plenty, but I still have other functions which fzy probably should cover.

          Just use rg

    I wish there was something like fzf+preview in the browser could make searching stuff easier.

        I mean as a Ctrl+f replacement doubt you can compile fzf or some other rust alternative to wasm anything else would be just slow.

          if you just wanted to change ctrl+f algorithm you could patch firefox and then recompile it at home though, that should be trivial to do

    What really needs fuzzy search is a file picker, so I'm adding it to the fast rust version of pikeru

        Yep, been working on the improved version (same repo different branch if you want to try it) since the old python one is nice to use but a bit slow. Just getting started on the fuzzy search, which will include the ability to search by tags and whatever else you want to index things by
