YetAnotherCodeSearch

Analytics Build Status

This is a plugin for Sublime Text 3 that works with CodeSearch to provide fast searching in a large codebase. This is most useful for large projects where a normal Find is just too slow.

Yet Another…?

Yeah. There is SublimeCodeSearch; however, there is no LICENSE file so I couldn't make any modifications to the project. That said, this project will probably deviate enough from SublimeCodeSearch that it will be worth separating anyway. Some things worth highlighting:

  • Search results are placed in a buffer, similar to Sublime Text's Find functionality.
  • Searching and indexing don't require a csearchindex setting to be set in the project, thus using the user's index file, as is the default for cindex.
  • Plus new features
    • Can specify case and file restrictions when searching
    • Manage and update the index file for a Sublime project.

Setup

Prerequisite

You will need a CodeSearch binary. You can build this by installing Go and get the binary.

go get github.com/google/codesearch/cmd/...

Installation

The easiest way to install the plugin is to simply use PackageControl. Just look for the YetAnotherCodeSearch plugin and install.

-or-

You could download/clone the source and place it into your Sublime Text plugin directory with the name YetAnotherCodeSearch.

git clone \
    https://github.com/pope/SublimeYetAnotherCodeSearch.git \
    YetAnotherCodeSearch

Usage

As is with CodeSearch, there are two main steps to using this plugin - indexing and searching.

Indexing

In order to make searching fast, first we need to index the project. To do that, open up the command palette (Tools > Command Palette…) and look for Code Search Index. This command runs in the background and could take a while depending on the size of the project and the speed of the disk.

That works with existing index files, but YetAnotherCodeSearch can also set up an index for your current project. From the command palette, run Code Search Index Project. What this will do is take all of the folders in the project and index them for you. For this to work though, you must specify a project csearchindex file. See Project Settings above.

It should be noted, if you make edits to files then you will want to re-run the indexing step as to pick up those edits for the next time you run a search.

Searching

To run a search, open up the command pallet (Tools > Command Palette…) and look for Code Search. This will open up an input for you to enter your query.

From there, enter a regex-based search query. Multiple queries are supported. Each term will be ORed together. For queries with spaces in them, you can either escape the spaces or wrap the query in quotes.

Here are some examples:

some_obscure_method
my_method my_variable
"Hello, world"

The csearch command also supports limiting the results to just files that match a regex as well as can be told to be case insensitive. Since Sublime doesn't allow you to set custom UI on the input bar, you can encode these properties into special keywords in the query – namely file: and case:.

some.*variable.*name case:no
my_method file:\.py$
foo.*bar case:NO file:\.[ch]$

Once you enter your query, the Code Search Results file view should come into focus. You can move to any matched line and then press the enter key and be taken to that file and that match. You can also invoke the Goto Symbol command (Goto > Goto Symbol…) to get a list of all of the files that match your query.

Settings

In case anyone is migrating over from SublimeCodeSearch (like myself), you will be pleased to know that the settings and setting names are the same for this plugin.

The location of csearch and cindex can be specified by editing the user- specific YetAnotherCodeSearch.sublime-settings file. See the default file for configuration options. Both are easily found via Preferences > Package Settings > YetAnotherCodeSearch.

To add keyboard shortcut open Preferences > Key Bindings - User and add something like { "keys": ["alt+ctrl+shift+f"], "command": "csearch" }.

Project Settings

You can specify an index file to use for the project by editing the project (Project > Edit Project) and adding the following property to the JSON file.

"code_search": {
  "csearchindex": "path/to/csearchindex"
}

The location of codesearchindex is defined relatively to the project location.

Development

Please file an issue if you would like a new enhancement of if you run into any bugs. Of course, patches are always welcome :)

Testing

In order to run the unit tests, please install randy3k's lovely UnitTesting Sublime plugin and run the unit tests via that.
