I live in the terminal a lot during work, so I find tools like this super useful. Maybe it's something someone here can use to tweak a personal workflow, too, so there you go!

Very cool -- you should also check out fd! https://github.com/sharkdp/fd
Oops! I didn't realize your gif and the fzy gif were the same -- too caught up investigating fzy vs. fzf : P
Thanks for the hint!
In this vein, also you should check out notational-fzf for vim if you're a vim user. I am currently using it for my vim zettelkasten in fact.
fd and ag are the bread and butter of my terminal-based file search These are great!
@ctietze are fd and ag aliases? I can find no relevant man pages in my bash shell?
I've been around the terminal for a few decades and have never heard of these search commands.
Please school me. Class is in session!
I'm a zettelnant.

As I had to google these for myself to play with:
https://github.com/ggreer/the_silver_searcher (ag is the Periodic Table symbols for silver)
https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep (rg, which has been faster for me in random tests than ag)
https://github.com/phiresky/ripgrep-all (Neat trick that builds indexes of other doc types to scan for info out of various formats)
And probably many others as well.
rg sounds great, thanks for the pointer! With these tools, it's already feasible to navigate a Zettelkasten from the command line since they find anything so frickin' fast.
