Windows 10, Emacs 25.1

If I want to find file in Helm I use command helm-find-files. Suppose I want to find in current folder all files with extenstion *.gradle.

Here result:

Find all files with extension gradle in current folder

OK. It's work.

But now I want to find all files with extension *.gradle not only in current folder, but also in all subfolders (recursive). How I can do this by command helm-find-files?


Just type TAB, input shell and RET use Find shell command to find files with filename recursively.

Or simply C-c /

This will do what you want:

(defun my/helm-find-file-recursively ()  
  "Recursively find files in glob manner, in the specified directory."
  (helm-find 'ask-for-dir))

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c o f") 'my/helm-find-file-recursively)
