This post introduces a feature of emacs 25, searching for unicode characters (like á, ⓐ, or 𝒶) just by typing ascii "a".

This seems useful, could it be added to swiper without too much hassle?

There is a function char-fold-to-regexp that returns the necessary regexp for this.

Thanks, try it out. I don't know how slow this can potentially be. For small buffers, for sure no problem. And no compatibility to counsel-grep, since grep does not fold.

Set:

    (setq search-default-mode 'char-fold-to-regexp)

And your search for "un" will also match "Günther".

Fixes #2095
