Listing all files within a directory that the current note is in - current folder

Hi

Was not sure where to post it. Please move it if it’s incorrect

Onto my issue:

For the life of me I can’t figure out how to make dataview list all files under the directory that the current note is in - I’ve searched the forum and poured through the dataview documentation to no avail

I.E. within the directory for the actual note that contains

```dataview
table ....
```

This may be completely stupid of me, but I’d appreciate any help I can get

Many Thanks

Hi @gregp ! Consider to use my plugin for this purpose:

it keeps an index file updated by linking the notes placed in that folder.
It’s called Zoottelkeeper, downloadable from the Catalog.

Cheers,

Thank you for the plugin! I enabled the plugin but I don’t see any _Index files yet. Is there something I need to do in order for the index file to be created?

```dataview
LIST
WHERE contains(file.folder, this.file.folder)
```

Thank you so much :1st_place_medal: I couldn’t find reference to this in the docs. I’ve worked this into my bigger query, and it does exactly what I need :blush:

I shall take a look, but I just wanted to get it working with Dataview for now

Thanks for the reply

Hi @bobkitz !

Index file generation is triggered by a file manipulation like creating a file, moving a file to another directory or delete a file.Then the index file is going to be maintained by the plugin.
