I’ve been using Ripgrep on my work machine, and for pure performance, it’s tough to beat.
Here are two mappings I’ve set up to replace common search behaviors with with
their Ripgrep equivalent. The first uses Ripgrep for Vim searches, and the
second uses Ripgrep for
:grep command-mode searches.
if executable('rg') " Use ripgrep for Vim search let g:ackprg = 'rg --vimgrep' " Use ripgrep for :grep search set grepprg=rg endif
As a side note, I’m still a huge fan of Ack for more powerful flags and features.
