Never been to TextSnippets before?

Snippets is a public source code repository. Easily build up your personal collection of code snippets, categorize them with tags / keywords, and share them with the world (or not, you can keep them private!)

To get more Spotlight search options use the commands mdimport -A and mdls file.txt in

mdfind -onlyin ~ "*==*" | grep -i -E 'part.*of.*name'

mdfind -onlyin ~ 'kMDItemContentType == "text"wc' | grep -i -E '.*\.txt$'
#mdfind -onlyin ~ '*==* && kMDItemContentType == "text"wc' | grep -i -E '.*\.txt$'
