Desktop search tools for GNU/Linux: the competition hots up (part two)

Filed under
Software

In part one, I looked at the Beagle search tool on the command line and the graphical user interface and in part two I want to look at alternative front-ends for it. First out of the stable is...

Yabi
I will admit that I am a sucker for good eye candy (that was why I pimped my Fedora core 6 GNOME desktop to look like a Mac!) but it mustn’t only look good; it must integrate into the functionality of the software and give it added value. Yabi (Yet Another Beagle Indexer) is a good example of this union of style and function.

Catfish
In my quondam days I used to going fishing—but it wasn’t until I started researching this article that I caught my first catfish and clearly that is what the application’s designer(s) had in mind to if the icon for it is anything to go by. I don’t know the origin of the name but the best that I could come up with was, irrationally, a combination of Fish, the interactive shell alternative to Bash and the cat command. Funny, but, doubtless, wrong! (It was previously Search4files.)
