I have a (deeply nested) directory containing 10s of thousands of wolfram files (mostly notebooks (nbs), but also scripts (.wls), packages (.m, .q
wl), my and wxf data) and many subfolders each with a few hundred notebooks on average. Each notebook contains 10-100 of pages. I want to search on text in the files and within relacant notebook cells types e.g. Code, Text, Title, SubTitle, Item, Program, ExternalLanguage, etc.
I’d like to have a live search interface to quickly search through the contents of all files and visually show the matches highlighted within their context.
Is there an existing project or best practices for doing this?
The TextSeach related wolfram symbols are old and seem slow/weak, can mma even do this? Mma is obviously needed to preview the content of matches within notebooks, but what other tools would be used to build such a live deep search?
