Introduction

USAGE

I recommend to set up a shortcut (e.g. ALT+O).

jopen will search only in your "main project". You can switch projects using the built in "Select Project" menu.

Just enter the filename you are looking for to start a search.

jopen also uses a regex kind of search:
"smecontller.b" will also find "some_controller.rb"

Match file extensions with '$':
".txt$" will not find "file.txt.bak"

To use the directory search enter the the initial letters of the folders seperated with a whitespace followed by the filename:
"p t y fil" will find "/path/to/your/file.tmp"

Use CTRL+R to reload the filestructure if new files where added to the project

How is this better than CTRL+O

As far as i know CTRL+O or Go to type searches inside your project sources for class names. So it is not useful for opening any kind of file.

ALT+CTRL+O or Go to file searches for files, but its kind of slow. It searches in all your projects so you sometimes have to pick from a lot of files from different projects. When you mistype you sometimes have to wait a couple of seconds to see "No Files Found". It also cannot open files like ".git/config".

jopen is way faster when you want to open a certain file.

How is this better than CTRL+O

I use CTRL+O right now to do file lookups. It has wildcards and case in/sensitive searching.

How is this different or better?
