dm4-webclient / files-plugin: filename search in my filerepo(s)

Reported by: Malte Owned by: jri
Priority: Major Milestone: Release 4.8
Component: DeepaMehta Standard Distribution Version: 4.7
Keywords: Cc: dgf, JuergeN
Complexity: 3 Area:
Module: deepamehta-webclient


As known from a file browser, e.g. nautilus in ubuntu, i can type a filename query (with an asterisk) on top of a folder hierarchy (in dm4 this may be just root, any or one of my workspaces filerepositories) because one, when knowing the filename does not want to click through a potential complicated organized tree just to reveal one specific file item.

A simple, recursive file/folder by name search should be provided for users who incorporated an existing file-repo into their dm4 installation.

Duplicate of #957?

OK, #957 is now about file content search.
So, this ticket (#861), which is about file name search, remains open.

Just for the background how DM's file browser works: The files/folders listed in the detail panel originate from a (server-side) file system scan. For a file/folder to appear here does not mean a corresponding File/Folder? topic exists already. File/Folder? topics are created lazily, that is only when the user reveals a file/folder on the topicmap.

Do you want ...

  1. Search the File/Folder? topics by file/folder name. This works already (kind of).
  1. Scan the actual file system. (I guess you mean this.)

From my point of view further conceptualization is necessary in order to realize 2. How would the UI look like? How would the user interact? What actions would DM perform?
