    i use fd to search for files its like find but faster. you arent supposed to parse the output of ls so id suggest switching to find or downloading fd and using that
  • How to make telescope not show a particular folder? | 2021-04-23
    find is the standard GNU utility to search for files in a directory hierarchy. fd is a simple, fast and user-friendly alternative to 'find'. You should type both on your terminal to see if they are present and/or install them. Telescope is flexible enough to allow you to pass an arbitrary shell command to search for files or for anything. If you don't, then it uses some sensible default command for each picker.
  • I'm fairly new to Linux (Ubuntu) and it's possible that I might be missing something but every time I uninstall an application some files are left behind (eg: Zoom, Play on Linux) What's the correct way to fully remove an app and all its files?
    The package manager will not help you. Instead I use the fd utility. It's like the GNU find utility but I find it easier to use.

    In addition to fzf and ripgrep, you can have a look at fd. This is often a faster alternative to find and can be combined with fzf, for example.

  • fselect - Find files with SQL-like queries
    You might like fd to for file name searches, instead of 'find'
  • 4 high level actions of "find" commands
    And while `find` is a great command, for most WSL users, where we have full control over what's installed and available to us, I'd recommend replacing `find` with `fd` ( It covers 90% (probably more) of the use-cases of `find`, and it does it faster and more intuitively.
  • Why to `find` files when you can `fd` them ;) | 2021-03-11
    If you happen to be a frequent terminal user, you must be using the GNU find command to know the location of files. But as the number of files increase, you can see a significant increase in runtime of find. This is where the younger sibling fd comes in picture ;)

    fd is as good as long as you know how to pipe output into other commands / loop over files. It's basically a savior for one-off batch jobs
