Default Find in Files Filter

Vote 539 6 years ago 0

Developers seldom want to perform project-wide searches and have matches returned from cache files, modules, or logs.  It is time consuming to manually enter "not" expressions for these kinds of files into the "where" field of Find in Files every time a new search is performed.  It would be great to have an option in the project and/or user settings like the following:

"default_find_in_files_filter": "-*.scssc,-tmp/*,-node_modules/*,-*.sublime-workspace"

The expression would then be automatically appended to all find-in-files queries.
