    If you want to integrate fzf with rg, fd, bat to fuzzy find files, directories or ripgrep the content of a file and preview using bat, but the fzf document only has commands for Linux shell (bash,...), and you want to achieve that on your Windows Machine using Powershell, this post may be for you.

    There were quite some occurrences of this component in the entire project, therefore just searching for base-input was not going to cut it for me. Instead, I decided to use regular expressions resp. regex with ripgrep. After installing ripgrep it provides a rg command line tool.

    Basic code searching skills seems like something new developers are never explicitly taught, but which is an absolutely crucial skill to build early on.

    I guess the knowledge progression I would recommend would look something kind this:

    - Learning about Ctrl+F, which works basically everywhere.

    - Transitioning to ripgrep https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep - I wouldn't even call this optional, it's truly an incredible and very discoverable tool. Requires keeping a terminal open, but that's a good thing for a newbie!

    - Optional, but highly recommended: Learning one of the powerhouse command line editors. Teenage me recommended Emacs; current me recommends vanilla vim, purely because some flavor of it is installed almost everywhere. This is so that you can grep around and edit in the same window.

    - In the same vein, moving back from ripgrep and learning about good old fashioned grep, with a few flags rg uses by default: `grep -r` for recursive search, `grep -ri` for case insensitive recursive search, and `grep -ril` for case insensitive recursive "just show me which files this string is found in" search. Some others too, season to taste.

    - Finally hitting the wall with what ripgrep can do for you and switching to an actual indexed, dedicated code search tool.

    The world has moved on though to opinionated tools, and Rust isn't even the furthest in that direction (That would be Go). The equivalent of those two lines in Cargo.toml would be this example of a basic configuration from the jacoco-maven-plugin: https://www.jacoco.org/jacoco/trunk/doc/examples/build/pom.x... - That's 40 lines in the section to do the "defaults".

    Yes, you could add a load of config for files to include/exclude from coverage and so on, but the idea that that's a norm is way more common in Java projects than other languages. Like here's some example Cargo.toml files from complicated Rust projects:

    Servo: https://github.com/servo/servo/blob/main/Cargo.toml

  • Ugrep – a more powerful, ultra fast, user-friendly, compatible grep

    I'm not clear on why you're seeing the results you are. It could be because your haystack is so small that you're mostly just measuring noise. ripgrep 14 did introduce some optimizations in workloads like this by reducing match overhead, but I don't think it's anything huge in this case. (And I just tried ripgrep 13 on the same commands above and the timings are similar if a tiny bit slower.)
