    creep

    crawls metadata in files and directories.

    $ creep "'microscopic' in tags or 'rainbows' in tags"  
    a.md
    b.js

    installation

    # npm install -g creep 

    usage

    add front matters to the files you want to be searchable:

    a.md:

    ---
    tags:
      - rainbows
      - earthworms
    ---
     
    # there are rainbows
    and earthworms

    b.js:

    // --- 
    // tags: 
    //   - microscopic 
    //   - hummingbirds 
    // --- 
     
    console.log('and microscopic hummingbirds');

    then just query the metadata:

    $ creep "'microscopic' in tags or 'rainbows' in tags"  
    a.md
    b.js

    creep uses coffeescript as the query language, but alternatives can be plugged in. lodash is available in queries as _.

    creep looks for the first of the following metadata files in the directories it crawls, recursively merging the metadata into child directory and file metadata:

    • .creep.yml
    • .creep.yaml
    • creep.yml
    • creep.yaml
    • .creep.json
    • creep.json

    config

    creep's uses the config defaults given in creep.config, then merges these defaults with the first of these configs that it finds:

    • ./.creeprc.yml
    • ./.creeprc.yaml
    • ./.creeprc.json
    • $HOME/.creeprc.yml
    • $HOME/.creeprc.yaml
    • $HOME/.creeprc.json

    install

    npm i creep
