ffind allows quick and easy recursive search for files in the command line.
It’s designed to help you find a file you don’t know exactly where it is or how it’s called in a jungle of directories.
This is free and open source software.
- Search recursively on current directory by default.
- Ignores hidden and source control files and directories by default, avoiding showing files you don’t care.
- If the FILE_PATTERN is all in lowercase, the search will be case insensitive, unless a flag is set. Just write the search in lowercase to ensure maximum returns.
- Will print colorized output in glamorous red (default), except on redirected output.
- Can delete matched files, making very easy to clean compiled files, like .pyc or .o.
- Input filename may be a full regex.
- Regex can affect only the filename (default) or the full path.
- Follow symlinks by default, but that can be deactivated if necessary to avoid recursion problems
- Works in Python3! Older versions (until v1.3.1) are also Python 2.7 compatible for legacy support.
- Can execute commands on matched files.
- Experimental fuzzy search.
