    Sometimes I don't know exactly how to configure a package or which options I should be using. Instead of searching the web for the examples last year I came up with an idea: I started collecting interesting/useful dotfiles~/~dotemacs collections in a single place. You can find the repository at github.com/dorneanu/dotemacs. So what I usually do is to search inside the folder where I've cloned all repositories for specific keywords. For this purpose I use rg.el and some custom function:
  • Ripgrep with glob patterns doesnot seem to work for me

    I am a newbie to emacs and just last week i installed and learning about emacs. I wanted to search for text across multiple files and exclude certain file types. I have been trying to use https://github.com/dajva/rg.el

    rg.el or deadgrep: Emacs interfaces to ripgrep, a grep-like tool that is very fast. This lets us search across a large number of files for a pattern of text. The disadvantage of searching for text is that if you are looking for the method called foo and there are hundreds of them that exist, it can be hard to know which one you really want. On the other hand, at the scale and complexity that you are talking about, I can imagine that more IDE-like tools just start failing.

  • Recreated Vim Workflow. What else is cool?
    1 project | /r/emacs | 9 Mar 2022
    Oh that's a good point about quickfix. I do end up going back to vim for that sort of thing too I guess. In emacs I did setup https://github.com/dajva/rg.el which gives you https://rgel.readthedocs.io/en/2.1.0/usage.html#results-buffer to look through results but I've never tried to do something like cnext/cfdo/colder/cnewer in emacs.
  • Is there a magit-like interface for grep?
    5 projects | /r/emacs | 17 Feb 2022
    I use a different ripgrep integration, rg. It has a menu using transient, just like magit (set it up with (rg-enable-menu)). It makes rerunning the searches with different parameters easy.
  • Is it possible to search text into OCRed PDFs? How?

    You can use the rg.el and change the executable to use the ripgrep-all. For example:
