#!/usr/bin/env python
# Find paths matching directories in subversion repository

__author__ = "Miki Tebeka <>"

# * Limit search depth
# * Add option to case [in]sensitive
# * Handling of svn errors
# * Support more of "find" predicates (-type, -and, -mtime ...)
# * Another porject: Pre index (using swish-e ...) and update only from
#   changelog

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
