Find file by first Pinyin characters of Chinese Hanzi

输入拼音首字母,即可在 Dired 中定位到对应的中文文件.

Emacs不会比total commander差.


Download and place find-by-pinyin-dired.el somewhere (say ~/.emacs/lisp), add below code into your .emacs:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/lisp/")
(require 'find-by-pinyin-dired)


M-x find-by-pinyin-dired find files in the directory which users provide interactively.

M-x find-by-pinyin-in-project-dired find files in the project root directory.

The root directory is in find-by-pinyin-project-root.

If find-by-pinyin-project-root is nil (default value) and find-file-in-project is installed, project root directory is detected automatically.

If find-by-pinyin-no-punc-p is t, English punctuation is converted to Chinese punctuation.

If find-by-pinyin-traditional-p is t, traditional Chinese characters are used instead of simplified Chinese characters.

If find-by-pinyin-only-chinese-p is t: the resulting regular expression doesn’t contain the English letter.
