Hi!

Tembo is a search tool based upon the Spotlight engine. It is meant to makes searching easier and faster.

You may read more about Tembo and grab the public beta in the new Tembo Support Forum.

I am curious as why HoudahSpot was not extended to provide the functionality of Tembo?

I realize the cost will not be much, but I feel a bit slighted having paid for HoudahSpot, to see another tool who's functionality would in most cases be looked at as an added feature to an existing tool.

Hi!

I see HoudahSpot and Tembo catering to a different audience: Tembo target the novice user. It has much less features than HoudahSpot has.

I still hope some day to be able to offer a cross-grade option for current HoudahSpot users.

Yea, I prefer this UI to HoudahSpot's (apart from the pattern on the toolbar). Hopefully some of it will make it over to HoudahSpot in the future.

Hi!

Have you tried the latest version of Tembo. The pattern in the toolbar has changed.

The basic principles behind Tembo and HoudahSpot differ. HoudahSpot helps you narrow down your query. It actually encourages you to enter all you know about the sought for file before even starting the query.

The only narrowing down happening in Tembo is through the group drill down and the search field. Within groups you apply filters to existing results.

Groups exist in HoudahSpot in the form of the "Content kind" criterion.

It might be a good idea to bring filters over from Tembo to HoudahSpot. The problem I foresee is that Tembo has knowledge of which type of files you are looking at. Thus it may present appropriate filters. HoudahSpot would need to present all filters regardless of which ones are of actual use for the current query.

I've downloaded the latest version (1.0 draft 8), but still see a texture used in the toolbar. I really don't see the point of going against Apple's HIG. To me it doesn't improve the look of the app, it just seems odd.

Hi Jono!

It's a different texture. I went from a grid texture to a textile texture.

I don't think there is anything in the HIG that forbids styling windows. And I happen to like the current look.
