Grep like utility for browser
Search and filter text in your browser.
This is a utility designed to help you find information in logs. It works best with text files. It is similar to grep in that you can filter lines based on your search. It is better than grep in that you can bookmark specific lines. In this version (1.0) search and filter is limited to case-insensitive strings.
INSTRUCTIONS / TUTORIAL:
Press icon to activate HotLog on your page.
Enter a search-term in the box. HotLog will move the document to the first occurrence of the search-term and highlight all occurrences. You can move to the next or previous occurrence by using the arrow buttons to the right of the search box.
With a search-term in the box, press enter. The search-term is now a filter-term. HotLog will filter all the lines so that only lines containing the filter-term will remain. Additional filters can be added. Lines matching at least one filter-term will be allowed through.
Double click a log line. HotLog will bookmark the log line by highlighting it and placing a link to it on the left with the same color. Bookmark lines will be displayed regardless of filters.
