Matt's Tidbits #48 - Separating out search results for test code

Last time I shared an Espresso ViewMatcher for finding RecyclerView items by title. This week I have a quick tidbit on how to group search results based on whether they're in production code or tests.

This week I was using Android Studio's search feature (as I do on an almost daily basis) and was manually collapsing occurrences that occurred in test code when a coworker showed me a neat trick - Android Studio has a button for grouping search results. Typically your "Find" view might look like this:

This can get cumbersome as "real" production occurrences are intermixed with calls to test code. But, press this button:

And voilà! Now your results are grouped so you can easily focus on just production code:

What other cool Android Studio features do you use that help you be more efficient? And, please follow me on Medium if you're interested in being notified of future tidbits.
