cocofifix It is very fast and can index many different types of files. Search results are shown in context and everything is configurable. Two or more different databases can be created, although this demands starting the application from the command line.
fzf is a general-purpose command-line fuzzy finder. * No dependencies * Blazingly fast * The most comprehensive feature set * Flexible layout using tmux panes * Batteries included * Vim/Neovim plugin, key bindings and fuzzy auto-completion
