This plugin inspired by Search in Fields developed by Tobias Beer. So kudos goes to him! The advanced search in fields uses Tiddlywiki 5.2.1 features!

This plugin has not published to GitHub, so use the JSON uploaded here! I will soon create a repo and put in on GitHub!

Update v0.2 [2022.01.06]


I am sure you may ask why not just use regexp for all operation!
The answer is I tried to use new search operator with all its search mode, but I realized there is some special setting in regexp search mode search::regexp so I used also regexp!

Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas! Let me how I can improve this handy plugin!
It can simply be added to the sidebar search (standard search)
