Software

I develop and maintain free software in my spare time. Most of the software packages available here are for Apple's macOS. They are distributed as free software under various permissive open source licenses. All of them are on GitHub if you want to lend a hand.

If you find my software packages useful, please make a donation. I rely on your support when it comes to maintaining and improving them.

KatSearch icon

Fast native Mac power-user app to quickly find files on entire HFS+/APFS volumes by scanning the file system catalog. Do you miss the good ol’ days before Spotlight, when search on the Mac simply scanned the filesystem? Yeah, me too.
