This should be obvious, but I can’t figure out how to search through the content of all files in a repl? The search bar searches file names, but I need to search through the content of all those files. How would I do that?
Thanks in advance for any help.
The search bar at the file tab searches the files. However, if you go to the the tab where webview or console usually is, if you press the +, it will bring up a list of tools and a search bar. This search bar can search everything (files, tools, and bits of code) in your repl.
That’s quite helpful, thank you!
Do you know if there is anyway to limit which folders / files get searched? In an express project, with a gazillion node_module files, those are all producing hits when I really just want to search through the files that my students wrote.
Based on my experience, I’m pretty certain that you can’t filter those searches. Try putting a request in #feature-requests though!
for now, you could run in shell:
grep --exclude-dir=node_modules "query here"
