I am trying to use the “search through your files” feature (CMD+SHIFT+F/CTRL+SHIFT+F) which is supposed to search through all files in a repl for occurrences of the search term, but in my repl this is not working to search through files in a subdirectory which starts with “.”
CMD+SHIFT+F should find all occurrences of the search term in all code files, regardless of subdirectory
CMD+SHIFT+F only searches non-hidden files and subdirectories and will not search through files which are hidden, or files which are not hidden but are children of a “.” subdirectory. There are many valid reasons why it could be important to search through hidden files in a repl, so this must be a bug.
Steps to reproduce:
Create a new nodeJS repl (any will do but nodeJS gang)
in the repl shell exec this:
echo "//hello this is a non-hidden file in a non-hidden subdir" >> abcdef.js echo "console.log(Date.now())" >> abcdef.txt mkdir .my_cool_code_files cd .my_cool_code_files echo "//hello this is a non-hidden file in a hidden subdir" >> defjkl.js echo "console.log(Date.now())" >> defjkl.js
now in the repl, CMD+SHIFT+F and search for “console.log”, you will see the abcdef occurrence but not the defjkl occurrence.
