If I open a git repo via Working Copy (or maybe in the future if I mount an SFTP folder - maybe via Transmit?) - is there any chance of something similar to TextMate/Sublime/Atom's Cmd-T function (or the Ctrl-P plugin in Vim)?

So I can type in part of a filename and it locates all matches within that directory and I can pick the one I want. As I do a lot of Rails work I often have to jump between different files in different parts of the tree - so being able to search aviecustinde which then matches to app/views/customers/index.html.erb is a massive time saver.

I already have this implemented in the Mac version of Textastic and I do plan to add it to iOS eventually. I'm just not sure about the UI - i.e. were to put a button to invoke it in addition to a keyboard shortcut. Suggestions are welcome! :)

Thanks for the quick reply.

Personally, binding to Cmd-T would be perfect.

As for non-external keyboard users - my immediate thought is to change the "recent files" button to an "open files" button, which happens to show the list ofrecent files, as well as the search box.

I’d love this feature, it’s the lack of a feature like this in any iOS code editor that prevents me from using the platform for development more often.
