Use Ripgrep-all from Emacs


Categories: Emacs Tags: Emacs

Previously, I wrote a little package to integrate Everything search into Emacs using the Consult framework. It’s pretty useful if you are searching for (say) all the files on your Windows computer that match a string or regex. I wrote about it here briefly.

In a similar vein, I wrote another helper to integrate Ripgrep-all with Emacs. Ripgrep-all is a spin on the ripgrep package, but it can search in word docs, pdfs, and some other file types that are difficult for traditional grep-like searchers. See my package here, that shows how to coerce Consult’s ripgrep command into using the ripgrep-all binary for broader search.
