I have this terrible problem of having to search across multiple repos for notes that I have made.
I have developed a fairly good habit of making notes of everything of interest. However, I seem to always forget the
repo where I made the note.
It would be good for me to search across repos to find commits that match my search string to recall what I need.
For example, over the past week after many hours of research, I seem to have arrived at potential solution for my note taking app using a
CodePen demo, using
quilljs and also
slate. I am pretty sure I made commits using these particular terms in some
.md file. However, recalling that file a week later is such a pain.
I dont have the patience to go through every repo to recall what I have done. This can easily be done using Fakerr/git-recall: An interactive way to peruse your git history from the terminal, or Introduction · Tig - Text-mode interface for Git or rgburke/grv: GRV is a terminal interface for viewing git repositories (My favorite!)
I really need to figure out a more efficient way to parse through the commits in the root directory of interest.
Further google research, led me to finding a feature ON
BitBucket to do this!
This is actually pretty useful. I was able to manage this for now using:
I still prefer to find a local way of doing this on my terminal or Sublime Text. But, this works for now!
Actually, come to think about it, I can open ALL my repos in Sublime Text and search through the files with the extension of interest. This may be good enough, but I am worried about the load on my system! Giving it a try now!
Not too bad actually!!

There is pretty good help here to search a repo using:
git log --all --oneline --author=rickhanlonii | grep "search query"
However, this searching the commit messages. NOT the commits themselves!
