Simple fuzzy-searching function and command line tool.

Installation

cargo install close_enough

Installing the ce command

This is a cd-like command for fuzzily changing directories. See examples further down.

  1. Install close_enough as above
  2. Run cle -ce-script bash > ce.sh to generate the shell script
    • If you also want to use the hop command, you should use: cle -ce-script bash --with-hop > ce.sh
  3. Source ce.sh in your .bashrc, .profile, or similar

Installing the hop command

This allows you to track recently used folders (you can define wrappers around cd or ce to do this automatically) and hop directly to them with a fuzzy match.

  1. Install close_enough as above
  2. Run cle -hop-script bash > hop.sh to generate the shell script
  3. Source hop.sh in your .bashrc etc.
