Spot, a little grep-like user friendly search utility

Written by - - Aggregated on Monday July 9, 2018

Last week I stumbled upon this little search utility called Spot, by Guillermo Rauch of Zeit.

  • Short & written in Bash: you can edit it easily to suit your liking.
  • Fast. Just find + grep + awk.
  • Searches most things by default instead of some known predefined extensions.
  • Ignores .git, .hg, .svn, devices and binary files.
