Command/GoTo palette

Post by cka3o4h1k » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:03 pm

NS is quick and clever.

I suggest to implement modern navigation cross functions and filesystem with Command/GoTo palette,
like in:
https://marta.yanex.org/
https://fman.io/
Sublime Text "Command+Shift+P"
(Alfred3, ForkLift3 etc)

With similiar to zsh expansion:
/u/l/b -> /usr/local/bin
And fuzzy searching from Sublime Text:
rwc -> Remove Without Confirmation :)

Welcome to the forum!

Completely agree with you about Command/Go To Palettes. I find them incredibly useful in Sublime Text and for me, this is my #1 feature request for NC. I believe there is a lot of potential here.

Off-topic: I didn't know about Marta - what a shameless copy of fman :/

That's a complex task, I didn't analyze it properly to give any thoughtful comments yet.
At this moment - doesn't the built-in "Shift-Cmd+?" hotkey provide a somewhat similar functionality?
Except for navigation, of course.

Yep. Just idea for a feature.
That's a modern way to combine and extend "Go To" and "Shift-Cmd+?" functionality.

For now, I use built-in terminal with zsh shell for this.
(sometimes buggy: lost "cd" synchronization with stop accept "Enter" in NC, tweaking zsh config reduced that bug)

Additionally I advice a Alfred3, which is compatible with NC.
Alfred Actions (File search tab) pass current selection from NC in prompt and provide GoTo and many customizable context functions.
I recommend Opt+Opt shortcut for getting current selection and Ctrl+Enter for reveal in NC.

Not founded in FAQ for setting NC as default files manager:

Code: Select all

defaults write -g NSFileViewer -string info.filesmanager.files

The help-search comes close, but Command Palette is IMHO more user-friendly in practice due to substring- and fuzzy matching. E.g., if you type "sel" into "Cmd+Shift+?" you get a lot of selection-relevant commands - but not the "deselect"-ones.

These features also make the Go To Palette really useful.
