vgrep -- A pager for grep

[Screenshot](./screenshot.gif)

Usage

  • As a pager:

    grep -rn data /some/path | vgrep  # -n for line numbers
    
  • As a drop-in replacement for grep:

    vgrep data /some/path                  # recursive by default
    vgrep data /some/path | vgrep default  # works with pipes, too
    
  • With a git alias defined in your ~/.gitconfig:

    git config --global alias.vgrep '!__git_vgrep () { git grep --color=always "[email protected]" | vgrep; }; __git_vgrep'
    git vgrep data
    
  • Using ack/ag instead of grep? No problem:

    ack data | vgrep           # Output of `ack` is compatible
    ack --color data | vgrep   # Even coloring works
    ag --color data | vgrep    # Same for `ag`
    

Keybindings:

  • Use hjkl or the arrow keys to navigate
  • Enter opens a pager with the selected file
  • e opens the selected file in $EDITOR
  • Tab switches between results list and pager
  • q closes the pager and then the entire application.
