Existing alternative solutions for bike file content search and navigation

  • One is DEVONthink which was mentioned in another post.

  • Another one is FoxTrot Search, which was recently discovered.
    I can add #tags inline, then search rows where have these tags.
    It has many customizable search options and performs well. I feel that its search function is more powerful and flexible than DEVONthink, but it’s also quite expensive. (30 day trial)

There is also a similar flat level search result view.

If you have any other feasible solutions, please feel free to share them.


EagleFiler can do this, too. It has full indexed searching, highlights matching terms, supports smart folders, etc.
