This week's #cliAppOfTheWeek is #ripgrep, the command-line tool for searching text files as quickly as possible.

It's a lot like the classic GNU `grep` but *much* faster (roughly 5× faster in many use cases) and can be used as a back end for your favorite incremental/fuzzy search.

FYI: the "rip" in the title refers to its speed at ripping through text, not R.I.P.—ripgrep isn't a grep killer and was never meant to be; grep is still great!

#cli #rust #rustlang



`set grepprg=rg --vimgrep` in has been a real game-changer for me, as well as this awesome tidbit for making extra fast
