By default Snipline searches the name, command, alias, and tags for a match against your search term. As of 0.7.0 Snipline uses Lunr.js for searching.

With that in mind you can use the following syntax to search:

  • + - word must appear in results. E.g. +sql.
  • - - word must not appear in results. E.g. -git.
  • * - Wildcard. E.g. grep*, *sql, *sh*.
  • ~<number> - Fuzzy matches. E.g. gyt~1

Searching specific attributes

The following attributes can be searched

  • name - The name of the snippet.
  • docs - The snippet documentation.
  • alias - The snippet alias.
  • command - The command associated with the snippet.
  • tags - The tags associated with the snippet.

For example, you can search for all of the snippets that are tagged sql like this.

tags:sql

Another example, you want to search documentation that contains the word Linux or unix, you could do the following

docs:*nix

More example searches

Search for snippet that contains git but not log

git -log

Search for a curl command that must include auth

command:curl +auth*

Search for misspelled or uncertain text

magneto~1
# results matching magento

Escaping search syntax

When you wish to search dashes (-) or other characters that are used in the Lunr search syntax you can use a backslash (\) before the character you wish to keep.

git \-\-log
