globwalk 0.8.1

Glob-matched recursive file system walking.


Build Status Build status License

Recursively find files in a directory using globs.

Based on both walkdir & ignore (❤), this crate inherits many goodies from both, such as limiting search depth and amount of open file descriptors.

Why not glob

  • The glob crate does not support having {a,b} in patterns.
  • globwalk can match several glob-patterns at the same time.
  • globwalk supports excluding results with !.
  • glob searches for files in the current working directory, whereas globwalk starts at a specified base-dir.


To use this crate, add globwalk as a dependency to your project's Cargo.toml:

globwalk = "0.8.1"

The following piece of code recursively find all png, jpg, or gif files:

extern crate globwalk;

use std::fs;

for img in globwalk::glob("*.{png,jpg,gif}").unwrap() {
    if let Ok(img) = img {
        println!("{:?}", img.path());
