Disappointing Plugin

As I should have expected from a Netbeans plugin, this one is quirky, strange to work with and doesn't even work (NB8).

Here's what should be fixed:
- running commands should have the output written in the output log (or somewhere visible)
- running commands should cause the currently open tab to reload (commands might change file on disk)
- when I untick the "Confirmation on default command" I was expecting not to see the annoying confirmation anymore
- after adding a custom command, I expected it to be available as a menu item... why the hell does the command window open up? I waste much more time than just typing the command on CLI!
- why is there an "Apply" button next to every setting? O.o

Please add support for custom File Browser command

Please add support for custom File Browser command the same way you add support for custom shell/terminal via the tools->Options->Miscellaneous->QuickOpener->General_Options menu.

This plugin is great. I use it all the time on Windows OS and Red hat machines at work, but I use 'Linux Mint Cinnamon' at home, which is not currently supported by OSCommands, thus, the 'Open In File Manager' action always fails due to the method call Commands.getPlatform().browseInFileSystem(toOpen) at FileSystems.java line 37 failing. There are many file managers out there (especially for linux, similar to shells) and allowing the user to set a preference would help.

RE: Support for more file types

@Jirka: What do mean? What is the usecase? Please file an issue, so Diego or I can take of this.

Support for more file types

Could this plugin support more file types like *.html, *.txt etc? Thanks for the great plugin!

thanks all githubbers

thanks to all the people that commented, added isuues and made pull request in github, without that I didn't know there was enough interest in the release for 7.4

It might be a little too late to find it in the tools -> plugins list by default though.

Going forward I am very busy these days, but if there are some cool ideas to make it better / new bugs to fix I will do my best.

Diego.

Awesome!

For netbeans 7.4 beta testers would be awesome to have this plugin I can not live without.
EDIT:
You can download it and install it manually. Works perfectly in Netbeans 7.4

Great

The plugin is very good!
I'm expecting a version compatible with development builds of NetBeans 7.4.

https://github.com/kinkadzs/QuickOpener-NetBeans/issues/24 fixed

Hello ent78 again, it should be fixed now.

downgrading to 12.09

Hello ent38, thanks for your feedback, I updated the plugin because I added the funciionality for working with the files within the libraries, but obviously there is something wrong and need more testing. So i am reuploading the 12.09 version and will reupload the fixed one when everything works. I will test it on your environment.
Anyway, if you want to help me I opened a bug here:

https://github.com/kinkadzs/QuickOpener-NetBeans/issues/24

Thanks

Pb with Alt-1 and Alt-2 buttons/shortcuts

Hi,
I have a problem with the two first buttons : "Open in the default OS terminal" (or Alt-1) and "Open in the OS file system browser" (or Alt-2).
I select a file or a folder (or a class / package in the Projects view), but I always get the following error message :

"There are no files associated with the current selection."

Nothing relevant in the logs.
Tested on NetBeans 7.2.1 with JDK6u37 and JDKu9. Fresh installs and profiles.

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 7.2.1 (Build 201210100934)
Java: 1.7.0_09; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 23.5-b02
System: Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_US (nb)
User directory: C:\Java\__prefs__\7.2.0_jdk7_userdir
Cache directory: C:\Java\__prefs__\7.2.0_jdk7_cachedir


Any idea ?
Other functionalities work fine.

Thx.

RE: I can not change Alt+1 shortkey

Hi saeed_z_f, your issue will be fixed in the 12.9 release, please see quickopener-nb12.09.nbm, the issue is Shortcuts in keymap options not showing if not in toolbar
Posted by kinka on Sep 13, 2012
  

I can not change Alt+1 shortkey

I want to assign Alt+1 to another action in NetBeans but when i change the shortkey the Alt+1 was disabled, although i can change Alt+2 and Alt+3 and assign them to other NetBeans action.
can anyone help me?
is this a bug?
before installing this plugin everything was fine.
I am working on Ubuntu 12.04 and NetBeans 7.2

thanks.

Netbeans is not as effective without this

I am always in need of this feature and have been looking for this feature on Netbeans and was quite surprised it doesn't come as part of Netbeans by default after searching for hours. This plugin has been a great tool to have and I can't do without it.

Awesome tool. Great work! Thank you.

Extremely useful


Very good plugin. I will agree, this functionality should come with netbeans out of the box. It seems odd that they don't include this. Glad this plugin fills the gap.

This must go in standard netbeans installation!

Best extension there is! Seriously. Once you try this explorer extension you will never need another.

very nice... saves you a lot of time

saves you a lot of time and clicks to discover the path of the files. really like the commands too
Posted by iLupi on Jul 19, 2012
  

An absolute must-have add-on!

This add-on allows you to quickly switch to a command line or to a file system explorer, or even to run custom commands on your files. Pretty cool!
