"Smart Search" for Zettelkasten
The larger my zettelkasten becomes, the more the built-in search of The Archive does not give a good overview of the search results in any cases. Especially when I search for keywords which occur in a lot of zettels or that are very short (like e.g. "git") it takes me a while to find the right zettel. Well, compared to Niklas Luhmann it's still ligheting fast, but thats another story. ;-)
Searching is something I do a lot while working with my Zettelkasten. As I said before, title search is the feature I miss the most in The Archive.
On the other hand, I asked myself: would a combined search of title and content not even be better?
To check that out, I made a little Python script that I just pusblished on GitHub (for the first time, by the way – quite exiting!). This is the link:
The installation chapter is quite short – probably too short, if you never used Python before. So if you want to check out my script (which would make me very happy) and if you have any trouble make it run, I am happy to assist.
