file searching tabs with regex

Post by bbooggrr » Fri Nov 09, 2018 12:05 am

there is a tool called everything by voidtools (david carpenter), and I tend to use it a lot with the file manager

it would be nice if there was a built-in search functionality that was fast, lightweight and open-source (unlike the aformentioned tool)

there is an open-source tool called SwiftSearch that is very similar to Everything, but it doesn't offer drop-and-drop (DDE) with other windows.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/swifts ... ion%207.2/
https://sourceforge.net/p/swiftsearch/c ... ster/tree/

except the multiuser security issues (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everythin ... r_security), it would be a nice addition to the file manager.
