Post by mragtronx8 » Mon May 17, 2021 4:53 am

hi,

is it possible to add the below features:-

* instant search [this option allows the user to directly make a search without the need to open everything windows. when u start typing, everything will be able to pop-up a search box].

* integration with 3rd party file managers

Regards
Mragon

Thank you for your suggestions Mragon,

I will consider an option to show Everything search results from common edit controls.

Some file managers already support Everything (for example Total Commander)

thanx,

hope this helps
instant search / find as u type:-
This feature is designed to recognize suffixes, prefixes, or any part of the item’s name, which means when you begin typing a file name, the results are instantly shown next to the search box. This comes incredibly useful when performing some guess work in order to reach your desired item by typing a few alphabets related to its name. Hence, multiple results start appearing at the exact moment when you start punching keys on your keyboard – all in real time. You can also use the arrow keys on your keyboard to select an item from the displayed results. This feature works both under the file managers and open/save file dialogs.

integration:-
can u please add support for [xplorer2 / xyplorer / directory opus / q-dir]

Regards
Mragon

@Mragon: take a look at Listary.
Development has halted, but version 5 should still work.

Listary Beta 6.0.5.16 works for me.
And not to forget your JumpToFolder tool
which works fine with Everything 1.5 in Open/Save dialogs :D

Recently the alpha version of Everything 1.5 was released. That took years of work and will take a lot more work (see the to-do list to get an impression).

Adding Listary-like launcher functionality is an entirely different program.
I am not the developer of Everything, but my very optimistic estimation: Ask again in about a year or two.
But probably longer ..

The Everything toolbar may be an Listary launcher replacement.
It searches with Everything and you can define by regulare expressions
which program should be startet depending on the results extension.
You can define addional context menu entries for all search results.
As long as your favorite tool can be started with command line arguments it can be used.
Query input is in a field on the taskbar so there is no Everything window needed for input and selection.
A dark mode is available among others.
In short I like it :D

There are quite a few alternative launchers that use Everything to search for files (listed here).
None of them are as sophisticated as Listary (imo), but maybe you like one of them.
(Check Fluent Search first)

Hi NotNull
thx
i know about these launchers.
Currently only Listary & Fluent Search has this feature;
but sadly listary is no longer being developed
&
fluent search is still in beta and according to the dev, it needs till the end of the year to start having stable versions.

and since Everything has all the features that i need; why not having: FIND AS YOU TYPE :D

this way, EVERYTHING will be the only tool that i use
