Sharkd implements many features of Wireshark, but I didn't find a way to search through packets like CTRL+F does in the UI. Is this possible?

CTRL+S saves the file. Did you mean CTRL+F or CTRL+G?

Yes, you are right, I meant CTRL+F

Can you work with the list output from a frames request?

I think that approach might work for display filters, but when it comes to string search or hex search, it seems like there would be an excessive amount of data that I would need to send to the client in order to sift through the packets.

See " Some Examples" for searches on hex bytes and strings.
A display filter on frame contains "foo" does a string search.

{"jsonrpc":"2.0", "id":1, "method":"frames", "filter":"frame contains \"hel\""}
