Hi all,

Many of the IDEs have a "live search" feature of files in a project, I was 
wondering if Emacs had a similar thing?

In many ways, find-name-dired is almost there. Live search basically is the 
same as find-name-dired except it lists responses as the user types in the 
query (and does substring matching rather than regex matching).

It would be really ideal if such a tool asked for the directory to use based on 
first use, and then saved that until the user manually updates it. Even better 
if it respected .gitignore and other VCS ignore rules.

Is there something similar to "live search" for Emacs?

Best regards,
