Search Party maps are now defined in
searchparty_user_maps.vim, the loading of which is controlled by
Added a new option,
0 (default) — A visual find operation (
<leader>* / <leader>#) will not set the search register (
1 — A visual find operation will set the search register, staying in visual mode.
2 — A visual find operation will set the search register, returning to normal mode.
Removed the experimental SearchHighlightReplace functionality.
Added some tests.
Search Party provides 18 user-maps and shadows the following eight built-in normal-mode commands:
/ ? * # g* g# n N
The 18 user-maps have default keys as specified in the
If a corresponding
searchparty_user_maps.vim exists, then all of the
mappings within it will be loaded unless the target has already been
mapped to another key sequence (possibly in your ~/.vimrc).
searchparty_user_maps.vim doesn’t exist, it is created as a copy of
searchparty_user_maps.vim to your needs.
To completely disable the default user-maps processing, add this line to your ~/.vimrc:
let g:searchparty_load_user_maps = 0
Functions matching the pattern
/AfterSearch_[0-9]/ will be called in
numeric order after a search operation:
* Searches for the next occurrence of the currently selected visual text. <Plug>SearchPartyVisualFindNext
# Searches for the prior occurrence of the currently selected visual text. <Plug>SearchPartyVisualFindPrior
& Starts a :substitute using the currently selected visual text. <Plug>SearchPartyVisualFindSubstitute
g& Repeats the most recent change within the current visual selection. <Plug>SearchPartyVisualChangeAll
gg& Just like
g&but don’t put
\>around the word. <Plug>SearchPartyVisualChangeAllBare
The visual mode
g:searchparty_visual_find_sets_search controls whether the
commands update the current search pattern (
@/) and whether visual
mode is retained or not. The default value is
0. The allowed values are:
To alter this option, add a line like this to your
let searchparty_visual_find_sets_search = 1
<leader>/ Prompts for a literal string to search for. This does NOT use a regular expression, so the characters you type here will be searched for literally without any magic interpretation. The <Up> key scrolls through prior literal search history. <Plug>SearchPartyFindLiteral
7,12 RSearch foo
Searches for "foo" only within the range from lines 7 through 12, both inclusive. The default range is % (the whole buffer).
<leader>mp Prompts for a Search Term and then prompts for Replacement Terms (space separated). The current line is then duplicated as many times as there are replacements, minus one, and the Search Term is then replaced on each line with each successive Replacement.
<C-L> Temporarily clears search highlight. <Plug>SearchPartyHighlightClear
<C-BSlash> Toggles search highlighting. <Plug>SearchPartyHighlightToggle
<leader>* Highlights all occurrences of word under the cursor. <Plug>SearchPartyHighlightWord
<leader>mah Toggle automatic highlight of all occurrences of word under cursor. NOTE: Update delay determined by 'updatetime' <Plug>SearchPartyToggleAutoHighlightWord
<leader>g* Highlights all occurrences of WORD under the cursor. <Plug>SearchPartyHighlightWORD
Highlighting Print Command
Will show the matching lines with all occurrences of
something on those
<leader>ms Prompts for a pattern and sets the current search to that pattern without moving the cursor to the next match of that pattern. <Plug>SearchPartySetSearch
<leader>mm Prompts for a pattern and uses matchadd() to highlight all occurrences of that pattern in the current window. <Plug>SearchPartySetMatch
There are six match patterns available, called SPM1-SPM6 respectively. Using more than six matches will recycle through the SPM set, losing the previous match assigned to that slot.
By default, the terminal palette colours #1-#6 are used for SPM1-SPM6. You can override these by providing lines like this in your ~/.vimrc file:
hi SPM1 ctermbg=123Note
Do this after you have set your colorscheme.
<leader>md Shows the list of existing matches and prompts for a number or pattern to clear. If a number is given, the corresponding match is cleared. If a pattern is given, all matching matches will be cleared. <Plug>SearchPartyDeleteMatch
The following functions and commands are available for Search Party matches:
SearchPartyMatchDelete(item) - clear match by number or pattern
SearchPartyMatchList - list all match patterns
SearchPartyMatchNumber(number) - reset match number (1-6)
Mash is a motion activated (lol - er, I mean, when you press n/N/\#/\*/g#/g*) current search match highlighter. Breaking that down for you, it highlights the match under the cursor differently to all the other matches (if you have :set hlsearch activated). If you don’t use hlsearch, then it will still highlight the current match.
