Everything for linux ?

Postby zhuo.quan » Sat Jun 09, 2018 3:52 am

I love this awesome tool, do you have a plan on linux in future ? Or it's impossible to achieve the same performance on linux?

Thank you!

Fsearch is fast but doesn't come close to Everything in terms of functionality. It can find files as you type (but lacks complex search syntax), open the containing folder (but doesn't even focus on the target) and that's pretty much it.
As of July 2018 there is
- no way to rename (let alone bulk-rename) files in the results
- no drag-and-drop or simple way to move them to another folder
- no real-time update (requires a complete manual update every time you change something)
Those are pretty basic uses of Everything as far as I'm concerned and in many cases it's more efficient to use Nemo's painstakingly slow native search function rather than Fsearch.

So the question still stands. Are there any plans to port Everything to Linux?

Hi
I dont think its directly possible as Everything uses NTFS meta info to get the insane speeds.
But of course the rest of its functionalities could be ported. (maybe not the insane fast live update)

I think Everything uses a lot of built-in components of Windows.
Isn't there a search tool for Linux? Something that makes folder&file indexing the same way Folder Indexing works?
