ListMagic is provided with a built-in search tool that searches for  
any string and even, in carousel through multiple widgets on the same  
card.
But you may write your own tool and override ListMagic one easily:  
see the docs.

As you guessed it, perfectionism can be counter-productive :-)
And I wanted this widget easy to use, even for beginners.
Nevertheless concerning contextual menus in the list field itself or  
the header: you can modify, enhance them as you desire: see  
ListMagic  FAQ for more information.

Best regards from Paris,
Eric Chatonet.
