How do I do full-text search through org-roam files? Things I’ve looked into or tried:
- org-roam manual suggests Deft, which I have not tried because it doesn’t scale well (according to what I read)
- org-roam manual also suggests NotDeft. This looks complicated.
- this thread looks very interesting but is above my head.
- I used to use
org-search-viewand it dutifully and reliably reported the org-entries in which search string was found.But it works on org-agenda-files and it seems a bad idea to include all roam files as org-agenda-files.
I would think this is a critical functionality. Relying on pulling up a note based on its title and tags works some of the time; but, what are people doing when you just want to search (possibly by regex) for a string among thousands of org-roam files? I guess I’m hoping that such a fundamental action for basic functionality already exists as a MELPA package.
