What are some options for getting really fast 'Find in Files' searching in VIM?
Our codebase is large enough that searching needs to work off an index. grep/vimgrep/etc are too slow.
我们的代码库足够大,搜索需要处理索引。 grep / vimgrep / etc太慢了。
Indexing doesn't need to be particularly fast; I can index overnight.
[EDIT] I'm also working in a Windows environment.
If it's source code (rather than full text search), then ctags with the TagList plugin should work well for your needs. See, for example:
EDIT: TagList and ctags will work on Windows as well (that's what I use). See the TagList install page and FAQ. The following links might prove useful:
There's also a TagList forum where you can get further help:
I set it up on my windows machine a while back, but I don't remember encountering any problems.
Something that I use, but not through vim, is ack: http://betterthangrep.com/
It is a perl based tool, and it should be usable in Windows.
If you're working with a large codebase, then it might be time to look for a more powerful solution than conventional tools. OpenGrok is a very fast source code search and cross-reference engine. On top of its great performance, it integrates with Subversion, Mercurial, and ClearCase, among other source revision control software. It sounds a lot like something you could use.
If you want support to use OpenGrok from within Vim, you could easily write a vim function that would call
system() to start the search for you. To read more about writing new vim commands, look up
:help 40.2 within vim.
I hope that's what you were looking for.
I don't know how I found this, but looks like someone has written a plugin for google desktop
then make a link
ln -s /usr/bin/ack-grep /usr/bin/ack
noremap <C-f> :copen<CR>:Ack -aQi --ignore-dir someignoringdir
to your .vimrc, after you can find in files through Ctrl+F, enjoy
到你的.vimrc后,你可以通过Ctrl + F找到文件,享受
_ /| \'o.O' =(___)= U
You can try this
:vimgrep /something/ */
:vimgrep / something / * /
and dont forget to open search result window after
