Search a directory with Atom

It’s wonderfully simple: ctrl+shift+F

It solves a problem i had with grep. Some of my note files contain huge long lines of dumped raw data. So they are very likely to match on a searched string, unlikely to be what i’m looking for, and—this is the problem—the one line that it matches on and that i’m being shown will be thousands of characters long, taking up screens and screens of terminal output, which makes it very hard to see if there were also more relevant results. There is undoubtedly a way to work around this on the command line, but Atom gets the result previews down to a line or two each, no matter what.
