Description Petr Jiricka 2014-09-22 08:02:49 UTC
Currently, Find in Files have a few checkboxes which help the user control what kind of files to search from, like
[ ] Search in Archives
[ ] Search in Generated Sources

However, it does not allow me to exclude libraries in HTML5 project from the search. In my case, I have a bower_components directory, which contains libraries managed by Bower. These are not versioned (and listed in .gitignore).

It would be useful if the Find in Files dialog had an option like:
[ ] Search in versioned files only

which would allow me to exclude all non-versioned files (specified in .gitignore, if using git) from the search.
