Regular expressions support


#1

Don’t get me wrong current Listary syntax is not bad but it lacks a lot off powerful features present in regular expressions. And almost all software I use on daily basis supports it, e.g. Directory Opus, Notepad++, …, so I think it would be really great if you would add it to Listary too. I’m sure a lot of power users will be happy to see this feature in your product. Also regex is relatively easy to implement.

BTW I bought Pro version, I hope this will help you to further improve this application. :slight_smile:

Thank you for supporting the development of Listary!

Regex and wildcard support is on the plan. It’ll be available in Listary 6.

Thanks, I’ll wait then. :relieved:

While I’m on the subject, I am already using space as a substitute for *, for example if I want to find a file named image(15).jpg from the list of files with the same prefix image but different numbers in the parentheses, I usually need to only type in i 15. Very simple and I like it, but as I mentioned before it lacks conditions, case matching, ranges and and a lot of beautiful things present in regex, that’s why I asked to add it. :slight_smile:
