What we like
Static (Go) binary to search code in the current directory. Default mode is to launch a TUI, but the CLI can also take parameters and output the results. Supports exact matching, fuzzy matching, negations, and regex. Can output in text, JSON, or vimgrep. Understands .gitignore.
What we don't like
No installable packages for Mac (binaries aren’t signed, which means a bit of extra work to pass the macOS security). Designed to just work rather than for maximum performance (but it’s still very fast).
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
