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
