I'm a convert to and now big fan of vim
However there's still one thing that I'm envious of in other editors:
Fuzzy finder matching
Is there an option or plugin for those to work the way I see it working in various other editors?
A good solution that I installed is https://github.com/junegunn/fzf
A couple of additional customizations I made were:
A command line alias:
alias ci='vi $(FZF)' # Just easier to type
Plus I added this to my .vimrc:
nmap :f :FZF # less typing
so I can just type
:f[RETURN] while within vi
The CtrlP plugin for Vim allows fuzzy searching of files, buffers, most recently used files, tags and has extensions for searching directories, quickfix errors, scripts in the Vims runtime path, undo history, lines in buffers and changes.
It's written in pure Vimscript and supports MacVim, gVim and Vim 7.0+. It also has full support for Vim's regexp syntax as search patterns and allows multiple files to be opened at once using a single search.
The latest version can be found on GitHub
