#7722 new enhancement

Add an option to only search for file names (instead of inside files)

Reported by: chriz Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Component: RepoSearchPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


Hi folks,

I often use the repo search just to view a certain file in the trac browser (Yeah I know, I could also manually navigate to that file, but I'm too lazy...) and it always annoys me that the search needs AGES (my SVN contains TONS of files) to look through every file's content while it would be perfectly enough to just search the file by name.

So it would be nice if I could choose whether to search inside files, or just by file name.

Greets, chriz

I took over maintainership of this plugin from athomas some time ago. There is a significant amount of work to do on this plugin, and I don't foresee having the time to do it all.

helend has written the TracSuposePlugin, which seems like a much better solution. Rather than writing the repository search functionality from scratch, a Trac interface to an existing repository search tool has been created. Rather than throwing more effort at this plugin, I'd prefer to help helend with enhancements to the TracSuposePlugin, or spend my time on other Trac plugin projects altogether.

I'd like to get some feedback and hear if anyone knows of a compelling reason to continue this project rather than moving to the TracSuposePlugin. Is there functionality in this plugin that doesn't exist in the TracSuposePlugin? I'm open to hearing all opinions and suggestions.

I'll leave these tickets open for about a week, but in all likelihood will close all of them and deprecate the plugin.

Thanks for your time,

  • Ryan
