We were fed up with how slow email clients are at searching through emails, especially when you have thousands in your inbox. There were no alternatives that we are aware of, so we decided to make our own!

What it does

You can bring up a command palette to quickly perform functions on your emails. For example, to search for every email that contains the phrase "twitter", in the subject, sender, or body, case sensitive or not.

How we built it

Sublime Text, Atom, Node.JS, Electron, jQuery, HTML and CSS.

Challenges we ran into

IMAP is a right pain. Especially in javascript! Some inboxes still don't even work, and some stop half way through, for some unknown reason that we will fix in the future.

What's next for Email CMD

Adding multiple accounts, OAuth login, sending emails (no time to add this! :c), draggable panes, etc.
