Is there any chance that this plugin get's an option to define a different file manager, additionally called with command line parameters?

Atm it just uses Windows Explorer when you open a search result and I'd really love to call XYplorer instead. E.g. my definition inside Everything for "Open Path" looks like this:

$exec("D:\Users\Highend\Tools\XYplorer\XYplorer.exe" /script="::if $(exists$('%1'$) == 1$) ${ goto '%1'; $} else ${ goto gpc$('%1', 'path'$); selectitems gpc$('%1', 'file'$); $}; sel '+0'; focus;")

I know, looks complicated :)

By adding the generic options to define a path to a different file manager + the command line options for I could open a path from the Keypirinha interface right inside XYplorer...

Interesting. Your request actually involves more possibilities so it could be applied in a more generic way. I have to dig further before giving a definitive answer.

For example, it would be nice to be able to specify some Python code, or the path to a Python script with some passed arguments. But then it would be nice to extend that feature to the web-browser, the text editor or any third-party application (in)directly specified via the config files.

I'll dig further and come back here with some answer.

Ok, thanks. A very generic way is absolute ok. I just wanted to show an example of how this could be used :)

@highend Mr Grumpy, while being Mr Grumpy and in case he cares, might still be interested in reading #95 as it is closely related.

I'd love to simply have another entry in [external] section for "file explorer" to define a file explorer for the command "Show in file explorer". In my case it is FreeCommander. (Needs variable for the selected item for use in the command line.) I love this option in Everything (the app, not the KP package).

Yes, a file_explorer setting has been added and will be available in next release. It also allows placeholders to be specified for more complex forms of command line.

If I use

[external]

file_explorer = "C:\Program Files\FreeCommander XE\FreeCommander.exe"

both the commands "Explore" and "Explore final path" open the final path of a link.
If I comment this line Windows Explorer opens the right paths.
