GlobSearch is an extension for Unity® that allows searching the scene hierarchy using glob patterns and paths.

Use wildcards when searching by name: "My*Object"

Filter results by specifying a path: "/MainGameObject/My*Object"

INSTALLATION

Import GlobSearch into your Unity® project. This makes a new window, called "GlobSearch", available under "Tools > GlobSearch". Open this window to use GlobSearch.

Start typing a query in the search field.

If "Live search" is enabled, GlobSearch will search as you type a query. Otherwise you can press ENTER or RETURN on your keyboard or press the "Search" button.

EXAMPLES

Door_01
Searches game objects by name and will match anything with this exact name

Door*
Matches any game object starting with "Door_"

/House/Doors/Door_01
Searches game objects by path and matches any game object with this exact path

/House/Doors/Door_*
Matches any door under /House/Doors/

/House/Doors/Door_0[123]
Matches Doors_01, Doors_02, Doors_03

/House/Doors/Door_!(01|03)
Matches any door except Door_01 and Door_03

/House/Doors/Door_+(01|03)
Matches at least one door with the name Door_01 or Door_03

/**/Door_*
Matches any Door in the hierarchy

*
Matches any game object in the hierarchy

SEARCH PATTERNS *

Before parsing the path part patterns, braced sections are expanded into a set. Braced sections start with { and end with }, with any number of comma-delimited sections within. Braced sections may contain slash characters, so a{/b/c,bcd} would expand into a/b/c and abcd.

The following characters have special magic meaning when used in a path portion:

* (e.g. /House/Doors/Door_*)
Matches 0 or more characters in a single path portion? Matches 1 character

[...]
Matches a range of characters, similar to a RegExp range. If the first character of the range is ! or ^ then it matches any character not in the range.

!(abc|a?c|a*)
Matches anything that does not match any of the patterns provided.

?(abc|a?c|a*)
Matches zero or one occurrence of the patterns provided.

+(abc|a?c|a*)
Matches one or more occurrences of the patterns provided.

*(abc|a?c|a*)
Matches zero or more occurrences of the patterns provided.

@(abc|a?c|a*)
Matches exactly one of the patterns provided.

**
If a "globstar" is alone in a path portion, then it matches zero or more game objects and sub game objects searching for matches.

ROADMAP

  • Searching the project window
  • A search history
  • Query options, like number of matches, nth match only etc.
