FRC: Far Remote Control — navigate to folder from an external program, e.g. Everything search

Quick update: I released version 1.1 which fixes a minor bug. Navigating to any file which was located in a drive root was impossible.

Far Remote Control plugin (navigate to folder in FAR from an external program, such as Everything search)

You might wish to announce your plug-in and/or register it at the PlugRing (however buggy it is). Ok, I need help. How do I upload stuff to the plugring? I simply cannot find a way to do that :Search: BTW, you might edit the topic starting post so that it is the announcement, and I'd move the topic...

Is there any way to open a folder in an existing FAR instance from an external program?

rattle , looks nice. FYI: far/plugin.hpp is not intended to be used directly, it's better to use plugins/common/unicode/plugin.hpp . Also, there's a plugin to search via Everything directly from Far. I will replace the plugin.hpp asap, thanks for the hint. Regarding the LiveFileSearch plugin; It's ...

Is there any way to open a folder in an existing FAR instance from an external program?

The proper way to do that is to implement a plugin that would start a background thread, listen a pipe / socket / any other IPC stuff there and, when needed, post a message to the main thread via ACTL_SYNCHRO. Far will then pass that message to the plugin's ProcessSynchroEventW function where you c...

Thanks for the confirmation. I will wait for a little while if someone has a brilliant idea or already knows a plugin that could provide this. Otherwise, I'll look into coding something that can forward commands to an active far session.

FRC: Far Remote Control — navigate to folder from an external program, e.g. Everything search

This is my original question and how this plugin came to be: Is there any way to open a folder in an existing FAR instance from an external program? I would like to have an external program open a folder in my already running FAR instance. For example, the external program executes something like fa...

Better way to issue shell command programmatically?

For this particular case, that is an alright alternative - however, it is not as good as goto: because it will not work as well for files as goto. However, I have asked myself this question with many FAR shell commands that I like to execute programmatically, a generic solution would be best.

Better way to issue shell command programmatically?

Let's say I want to use the commandline capabilities of FAR to navigate to a file/folder using the goto: command, but from inside a macro. Currently, I do this: panel.SetCmdLine(nil, 'goto:' .. directory) Keys('Enter') or alternatively, Keys('CtrlG') print('goto:' .. directory) Keys('Enter') I keep ...

ShellExecute inserts newline in Far interface

Hey all, I created the following command shortcut: CommandLine { prefixes = "vsc"; action = function(prefix, filename) win.ShellExecute(nil, "VSCode", filename, nil, panel.GetPanelDirectory(nil, 1).Name) end; } which will open the argument in Visual Studio Code. The problem I have is that this comma...

Hey, thanks a lot, I completely went past that one. I thought it was like lua's eval function.
