Searching all notes in a manner similar to grep

Is there a way to search for things inside all of the notes or specific notebooks like grep? I know it's possible to export notes to a markdown directory and just use grep, but I'd like to do such a search quite often though the day, so I'm interested if there's some way to do that directly without the need to export all notes first.

Have a look at Joplin Filesystem (JoplinFS)

Unfortunately, it won't work (properly) for this use case. It pulls the note bodies from the api as they're requested, which means grepping would be hitting the api for each and every note. I never profiled this, but I suspect it's slow.

Is it possible to do a markdown export using the command line? Maybe I could write a script to export the date to some path several times a day and then grep the data?
