This package implements intelligent helm fuzzy sorting, provided by
You can install the package by either cloning it yourself, or by doing M-x

Crazy stuff simmers in my
emacs-config, and every once and a while, it's worth sharing. This was no exception. It's been patiently evolving in my config for the better part of a year, and I think it's useful enough to benefit other people.
flx's author @lewang did start work on his own port of
