This is a card in Dave's Virtual Box of Cards.

Fuzzy Search/autocomplete for cards

As I add cards, it’s going to become rapidly more difficult to find the one I want.

Update: I just completed ratlink, which does this quite nicely! (And used it to make that link.)

In particular, I want to drastically lower the friction of linking between cards. A top priority will be the creation of a Vim function to fuzzy-search existing notes and insert a link to them. It might be nice if the feature also replaced the link text with the title from the note as well.

Not just for linking, I’d like to fuzzy search for cards for viewing as well.

I’m between fuzzy search tools at the moment, but that’s an active area. I expect to be updating this note soon.
