List match lines to another buffer, which is able to squeeze by any words you input. At the same time, the original buffer's cursor is jumping line to line according to moving up and down the line list.
- Culling all lines in buffer with your input
- Highlight multiple matched pattern
- Jumping line to line according to list buffer's move
- Cache result until modifies the buffer
- Go back to the last line
- Multi separated line culling
- Culling lines are editable
Now helm-swoop has several ways.
M-x helm-swoopwhen region active
M-x helm-swoopwhen the cursor is at any symbol
M-x helm-swoopwhen the cursor is not at any symbol
M-3 M-x helm-swoopor
C-u 5 M-x helm-swoopmulti separated line culling
M-x helm-multi-swoopmulti-occur like feature

- During helm-swoop
M-ito hand the word over to helm-multi-swoop-all
- While doing

It's able to use words within a region or a word at symbol as search query when it called. Also use a keybind you set just type like M-i instead of
C-c C-e to enter the edit mode.
Before enter the edit mode, you can choose some lines marked by
M-SPC to edit.
Apply changes to original buffer type
Across multiple buffers
- Select any buffers by [C-SPC] or [M-SPC]
- Press [RET] to start helm-multi-swoop
Skip select phase and apply all buffers.
C-u M-x helm-multi-swoop
Skip select phase and apply last selected buffers, if you have done helm-multi-swoop before.
Skip the select phase and apply to all org-mode buffers
Skip the select phase and apply to all buffers with the same major mode as the current buffer
Skip the select phase and apply to all opened buffers of the current project.
It requires projectile to be installed.
You may specify a filter that will be used for buffers
by setting variable
By default its value is
M-4 M-x helm-swoop or
C-u 4 M-x helm-swoop

Configure pre-input search query
By default, helm-swoop uses search query at the cursor.
You can configure this behavior by setting
helm-swoop-pre-input-function on your own.
;; Use search query at the cursor (default) (setq helm-swoop-pre-input-function (lambda () (thing-at-point 'symbol))) ;; Disable pre-input (setq helm-swoop-pre-input-function (lambda () "")) ;; Or, just use M-x helm-swoop-without-pre-input ;; Match only for symbol (setq helm-swoop-pre-input-function (lambda () (format "\\_<%s\\_> " (thing-at-point 'symbol)))) ;; Always use the previous search for helm. Remember C-<backspace> will delete entire line (setq helm-swoop-pre-input-function (lambda () (if (boundp 'helm-swoop-pattern) helm-swoop-pattern ""))) ;; If there is no symbol at the cursor, use the last used words instead. (setq helm-swoop-pre-input-function (lambda () (let (($pre-input (thing-at-point 'symbol))) (if (eq (length $pre-input) 0) helm-swoop-pattern ;; this variable keeps the last used words $pre-input))))
