Specify parent directories in search

Recommended Posts

I'd quite like to be able to specify parent directories in the Open command to filter down results, such as


open project1/index.html 


That would make the search function more useful when dealing with common filenames. In the above example, project1 would just be the parent directory; the path isn't absolute. The full path for that file might be /Users/me/projects/project1/index.html for instance

Fuzzy Folders might help you do what you want.

You can assign, say, the keyword proj (or just .p) to ~/projects and query across levels of the directory subtree, so the query "proj 12 css" would show your CSS files and/or folders under the ~/projects/project12/ subtree.
