Introduction

incsearch.vim incrementally highlights ALL pattern matches unlike default 'incsearch'.

Concepts

1. Simple

incsearch.vim provides simple improved incremental searching.

2. Comfortable

You can use it comfortably like the default search(/, ?). It supports all modes (normal, visual, operator-pending mode), dot-repeat ., {offset} flags, and so on.

3. Useful

incsearch.vim aims to be simple, but at the same time, it offers useful features.

Incremental regular expression editing

You can see all patterns that the given regular expression matches all at once while incremental searching.

Usage

Installation

Neobundle / Vundle / vim-plug

NeoBundle 'haya14busa/incsearch.vim'
Plugin 'haya14busa/incsearch.vim'
Plug 'haya14busa/incsearch.vim'

pathogen

git clone https://github.com/haya14busa/incsearch.vim ~/.vim/bundle/incsearch.vim

Basic usage

map /  <Plug>(incsearch-forward)
map ?  <Plug>(incsearch-backward)
map g/ <Plug>(incsearch-stay)

<Plug>(incsearch-stay) doesn't move the cursor.

Additional usages

README introduces some features, but please see :h incsearch.vim for more information.

Automatic :nohlsearch

Farewell, nnoremap <Esc><Esc> :<C-u>nohlsearch<CR>! This feature turns 'hlsearch' off automatically after searching-related motions.

" :h g:incsearch#auto_nohlsearch
set hlsearch
let g:incsearch#auto_nohlsearch = 1
map n  <Plug>(incsearch-nohl-n)
map N  <Plug>(incsearch-nohl-N)
map *  <Plug>(incsearch-nohl-*)
map #  <Plug>(incsearch-nohl-#)
map g* <Plug>(incsearch-nohl-g*)
map g# <Plug>(incsearch-nohl-g#)

Emacs-like incsearch: move the cursor while incremental searching

Move the cursor to next/previous matches while incremental searching like Emacs.

Mapping description
<Over>(incsearch-next) to next match. default: <Tab>
<Over>(incsearch-prev) to prev match. default: <S-Tab>

Scroll-like feature while incremental searching

Mapping description
<Over>(incsearch-scroll-f) scroll to the next page match. default: <C-j>
<Over>(incsearch-scroll-b) scroll to the previous page match. default: <C-k>

πŸŽ‰ Version 2.0 πŸŽ‰

Now, incsearch.vim provides some (experimental) API. You can implement or use very useful yet another search command πŸ”Ž

Experimental API

  • :h incsearch#go()
  • :h incsearch-config

Starts incsearch.vim with your custom configuration. See help docs for more detail.

Converter feature

Example

function! s:noregexp(pattern) abort
  return '\V' . escape(a:pattern, '\')
endfunction

function! s:config() abort
  return {'converters': [function('s:noregexp')]}
endfunction

noremap <silent><expr> z/ incsearch#go(<SID>config())
