#Searching notes

BlobPad supports full-text searching with a custom query language:

#Query language

  • +query/-query: will match a note only if it matches/does not match the query term
  • query: the query term will be stemmed and matched with the note "text index"
  • "query": requires an exact match (even in the middle of word), can contains spaces

#Sample queries

  • +apple -orange: returns notes containing apple and does not contain orange
  • apple: will match notes containing apple and apples
  • "apple": will match only apple (i.e. not apples), and will also match pineapple
  • apple orange: will match notes containg apple(s) or orange(s)
  • apple orange -"pineapple": will match notes containing apple(s) or orange(s); and that does not contains pineapple
  • "multiple words": will match notes containing exactly multiple words
