Project Description

A fuzzy text selector for files and anything else you need to select

Inspired by Gary Bernhardt’s selecta.

Unlike selecta, pyselecta doesn’t include any interactive functionality. You give it a list of options and a search term and it returns matches.


$ pip install pyselecta

This will give you the pyselecta shell command.


$ find . -type f | pyselecta "models"

This will return a newline separated list of file paths with the best candidate on top.

$ find . -type f | pyselecta

Omitting the search term just copies the stdin to stdout.


BSD, short and sweet
