Open File Fast - plugin detail

Open File Fast allows for quick finding and opening project files by entering only few characters of filename. It's like Textmate's or Netbeans' Go-To-File dialog but on steroids!

Introduction

Open File Fast is inspired by Textmate's quick open file dialog however it has a lot more features. Basically it works like this: you type only several characters of filename you are searching for and you get list of all files matching your pattern. For example when you are looking for FooBar.java you can type fbj and you will find it. It really helps navigating through the project (especially bigger ones) as you don't need to use a mouse nor locate filename visually in project tree but just use filename shortcuts.

Compatible to >=NB 8.0.2

This a fork of http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/16495/open-file-fast to support NB8.1+.
The original author Marcin Kulik provided me rights to contribute to the plugin's git repo/github. For publishing at the plugin center I use my own NetBeans account. The plugin is backwards-compatible to the previous versions because of the same codeNameBase.

Excellent plugin.

This plugin is excellent, and vital if you have a big project and no SSD.
Just wish the cache survived after restarting the IDE, and the ability to search folder names instead of just filenames (i.e. projects where you have a lot of index.html files and searching for "index" comes up with too many results ).
