I use grep.vim to grep in multiple files within vim. It usually works pretty well, but I recently needed a little more freedom in how I specify the files in which I want to search, and found that it can’t do what I want. I looked at the code and found that modifying it to do what I want would be hard with the current design, so I decided to create my own plugin.
The plugin I’m going to create is going to be very simple. It is going to provide simple greping functionality with a similar UI to grep.vim, but will allow more freedom on filtering which files to search.
