ylian, the actual dev started this in April: "Currently there is no Spotlight integration for Quiver. You can't search for Quiver notes from Spotlight. This should be fixed. You may not have Quiver open at all times. And not all your stuff is in Quiver. Spotlight search will provide a single place to search for all your stuff. Evernote seems to have Spotlight integration, but it also seems very buggy."

Then he said "Unfortunately this doesn't work. I have implemented the Spotlight importer, but found out that Spotlight doesn't index files inside a file package. Since Quiver notes (.qvnote) are inside a Quiver notebook (.qvnotebook) which is a file package, Spotlight won't index the notes. If I move the .qvnote file outside of the notebook, Spotlight indexes it right away. So either I have to change the file persistence scheme, or duplicate all the notes somewhere else. Neither seems to be a good idea. Mark this as "WONT FIX" unless some other ideas come up in the future."

Brett Terpstra replied later saying: "+1 on this. You have to export the spotlight-indexable content to caches and add an mdimporter that can associate the cached data with a specific note. You'd basically be caching the JSON in a temp folder for Spotlight's sake, but that's how Evernote and DEVONthink and others handle it." MMMM want dat DEVONthink integration.

And OSX 10.11/El Captain has something called deep links that someone said very recently. ylian, the dev, then said probably available in version 3.1 in early Sept 2015. But since Quiver 3.0 beta is still going on through the end of 2015, 3.1 might not be available until after winter 2015 aka like March, April 2016 earliest. Too far!
