Feature Request: filter files in "Folder as Workspace" by path
As I start working on larger projects with deeper file structures, I’m finding the Folder as Workspace feature invaluable. However, and especially with the listing not ordered by name, I’m frequently having a hard time finding anything in it, even when I know the filename and in some cases even the full path.
So I would really like (in addition to some sorting love) a quick filter bar that (when text is entered into it) simply excludes every file whose path (relative to the workspace root) does not contain that text, and the same for directories which also contain no matches.
|________________| root-dir + dir1 (containing hidden match.file) - dir2 other.file match2.file - dir3 another.file match-base.file
|match___________| root-dir + dir1 (containing hidden match.file) - dir2 match2.file match-base.file
partial path match
|2/m_____________| root-dir - dir2 match2.file
I think the Open File In Solution, Solution Hub, and Solution Hub UI plugins may do what you want in a somewhat different way. With them you can type parts of filenames and, if you want, pathnames and it displays the matching ones and allows you to select one to open in the editor.
