Alias score ???? Grrrrrrrrr
« on: August 05, 2008, 03:17:03 AM »
I've a question regarding score for plugin alias !
In the the current setting i've override a setting of 1000 for a "uni" alias for uninstalling programm but :
When i tip "u" i do not get my alias showing up in the search list.
When i tip "apl", i never get the aplugins showing up .....

in aplugins scoring is shown as 100 ????? -> always less than my folder/files :(

Why allias are not always in top score ??
you should also add a no alias search with a core alias  (ex !)

i made a uni alias and it showed up and searched fine and scored fine.  if you want to email me your myaliases.alias file i can have a look to see if i see what is wrong (mouser@donationcoder.com).

as for the scores in aplugins, you have found a bug -- it's not listing them properly on that list.

can you explain this more, i didn't understand:

Ooops the concern is about alias defined by/for plugin the uni is a replacement for the FARR uninstaller plugin (default unstall replaced by uni and default score of 300 replaced by 1000) in the plugin setting dialog.

About the !, i personally think that a one letter code at the beg of a search could replace the following:

+sall
could be *
+alias
could be $
-alias
could be !

ok i understand now i think.

A couple of thoughts:
  • I think the uninstall plugin should have a different default alias -- it's too commonly typed.  I think "unstall" would be a good one.
  • Your ideas for making the +sall +alias and -alias are not bad ideas, but i'm afraid those characters might be too common in other things.  Maybe we could make +a = +alias and -a = -alias and +* = +sall
  • One thing you should definitely check out is the brand new option that says to only match aliases when they are prefixed by a character.  This basically makes all normal searches act like -alias and all searches begining with a certain character act like +alias.
