ANGRYsearch – A Fast File Search Tool for Linux Desktops

Written by Martins D. Okoi

It wasn’t too long that we published an article about FSearch, a system stand-alone search utility tool for Linux. Today, we have another powerful app for you and it goes by the name of ANGRYsearch.

ANGRYsearch is a free and open-source Linux file searching tool with a focus on performance.

ANGRYsearch was created to fill the space that the famous Everything Search Engine did not fill in the Linux community. It functions as a system-wide search tool that instantly populates its results fields as you type. It is written in python 3 with its GUI created with PyQt5.

ANGRYsearch can be configured to use either a Lite or Full mode. The lite mode displays only file names and paths while the full mode includes the size and modification date.

While you are free to use either mode, keep it in mind that the lite mode is twice as fast as the full mode. You can set the mode in ~/.config/angrysearch/angrysearch.conf by setting angrysearch_lite to true or false.

ANGRYsearch has 3 search modes – fast, slow, and regex.
