The whole of your data at your fingertips


Kerry is a front-end for Beagle, the search tool that indexes all your data, making the data inside documents as easy to find as file names.

  • You decide which directories you want indexed
  • Indexing can be done in the background
  • After initial indexing, it is almost unnoticeable
  • Indexing can be paused while cpu-intensive tasks need the resources
  • Searching is case-insensitive
  • OR can be used for option searches
  • Phrases can be used, within quotes, e.g. "There be dragons"
  • Words or phrases can be excluded by using a minus, e.g. -cats
  • You can search by extension, using, for instance, ext:jpg
