How to use the in:file feature in user search

I’m not sure if the in:path feature is working properly when using the search code feature.

Let’s use my github account as an example:

So I have several obj-c repos, so searching using this:

type:user location:lebanon language:objective-c

works just fine. However when i add this

type:user location:lebanon language:objective-c audioSamplingToAudioQueue in:path

Nothing shows, even though I clearly have a repo that is both objective-c and has a path with that filename: https://github.com/abbood/audioSamplingToAudioQueue/tree/master/sampleQueueIphone

What I’m trying to get at:
I’m actually trying to search users who know android, putting java in the code filter is not enough as java covers many areas. So I want to show all repos that have build.gradle for example in the root directory, this way I can find only those users who have at least one android repo

Hey @abbood happy to have you drop into the community :tada:

type:user location:lebanon language:objective-c audioSamplingToAudioQueue in:path

This particular search will yield no users, however it does return 3 (at time of posting) repositories including that of your own.

The in:path qualifier will match code that has the term that precedes it in the path.
