Date Search Syntax suggestion

Post by eagleeyez » Thu Feb 14, 2019 8:00 am

Hello Again Void.

I have a tiny suggestion about these functions

dateaccessed:<date> Search for files and folders with the specified date accessed.
datecreated:<date> Search for files and folders with the specified date created.
datemodified:<date> Search for files and folders with the specified date modified.
daterun:<date> Search for files and folders with the specified date run.
da:<date> Search for files and folders with the specified date accessed.

It will be great to add the support for few keywords that translate to dates (like many other software do)... Today, Yesterday, Last Week, Last Month, etc...

I can help you compile the common words for this purpose if there is need... but this library can help you with the functions https://momentjs.com

Thank you again!

Thanks for the link and suggestions.

Everything already handles the following syntax:
today
yesterday
tomorrow
<last|past|prev|current|this|coming|next><year|month|week>
<last|past|prev|coming|next><x><years|months|weeks|days|hours|minutes|mins|seconds|secs>
january|february|march|april|may|june|july|august|september|october|november|december
jan|feb|mar|apr|may|jun|jul|aug|sep|oct|nov|dec
sunday|monday|tuesday|wednesday|thursday|friday|saturday
sun|mon|tue|wed|thu|fri|sat
unknown
ISO 8601


The todayat9:30 syntax is interesting. I'll consider adding support for this.
