This is a feature request stemming from a discussion in this thread: thierryvolpiatto/emacs-bmk-ext#1

It would be nice if, when calling M-x helm-bookmarks one could:

  • Easily turn on and off the visualization of the filesystem paths associated with bookmarks (for bookmarks pointing to files and folders). Helm could display the path of each bookmark on a second column, right next to the name of each bookmark.
  • When the option above is on, helm would let the user narrow down the list of bookmarks (i.e. select a bookmark) by typing strings that match parts of the paths of the bookmark.

The above would let the user find a bookmark to a file or folder either by:

  • Typing parts of the name of it
  • Typing parts of the the location the bookmark points to

Ok, the feature is now provided, so I close this, feel free to reopen if something is not working.
