Remote file search

How complex would it be to add a search for file by name in the currently open FTP cache?

The currently open FTP cache would be too limited, as it would only contain the folders you’ve looked at, and might be out of date. That’s a non-starter in my opinion.

Searching the files live is technically possible, but would be very slow as FTP just isn’t very fast.

I would recommend you use the Publishing feature instead.

I’ve seen this requested before and I thought there was an enhancement request. When presented with this idea in the past I thought an interesting way to do it would be run a remote find command and Komodo process the return respsonse.

We already have the code to run remote commands over each of the support protocols.

FTP doesn’t let you run commands besides the ones it explicitly supports.
