Hi guys, great stuff you are doing here, though I have an issue compared to other command completion tools - I can't make counsel show last used commands on top, which would be super useful for me.
Currently I always get a completely useless alphabetically sorted list:

Is it possible to enable such feature or does it require some development? Thanks!

Have you tried installing smex or its more actively maintained fork amx? counsel-M-x automagically integrates with either package when detected so that your more frequently used commands are sorted first.

@basil-conto Hi, just tried, looks like it works, thanks a lot! (maybe worth adding this into docs or something?)

It's mentioned in the FAQ: https://github.com/abo-abo/swiper/wiki/FAQ#sorting-commands-by-frequency

and also in the docstring of C-hfcounsel-M-xRET.

A lot of Counsel functionality can be better or more prominently documented, so I'm not sure this issue should be left open as a reminder for that. It's @abo-abo's call, though. Feel free to send PRs with documentation suggestions (I'm currently AFK).

@basil-conto I was looking into these docs here: https://oremacs.com/swiper/

Looking into them with an eye to extend them or what?

@basil-conto sorry, I meant in the docs on oremacs.com/swiper there is no mention about smex/amx integration :)
