CtrlP tjump

CtrlP extension for fuzzy-search in tag matches. May be used instead of :tjump or :tselect for IDE-like Goto declaration functionality, which jumps to the declaration in case of one match, and shows quick-search window in case of multiple matches.

Two vim commands are created by this plugin:

  • CtrlPtjump - go to declaration of the identifier supplied as an argument, if not use the word under cursor
  • CtrlPtjumpVisual - go to declaration of the visual selected text

CtrlP tjump


  1. CtrlP should be installed
  2. Tags should already work with :tag, :tselect and :tjump commands. More information on that here.


  1. Use your favorite method (I prefer Vundle)

  2. (Optional) Create mapping

    nnoremap <c-]> :CtrlPtjump<cr>
    vnoremap <c-]> :CtrlPtjumpVisual<cr>

Basic Usage

  1. Move cursor to the Class/Method usage in your code
  2. Press c-] (if you have created mapping) or just execute :CtrlPtjump (or :CtrlPtjumpVisual in visual mode) in the command line.

Or provide the symbol as an argument:

:CtrlPtjump MyFavoriteClass


It is possible to configure shortener for filenames, that will be displayed in CtrlP window. In the example below, RegExp '/home/.*/gems/' will be substituted by string '.../'. This may be useful if filename (with path) of generated tag is long and you want to make it shorter.

let g:ctrlp_tjump_shortener = ['/home/.*/gems/', '.../']

If there is only one tag found, it is possible to open it without opening CtrlP window:

let g:ctrlp_tjump_only_silent = 1

The tag name itself takes valuable screen estate and can be disabled by:

let g:ctrlp_tjump_skip_tag_name = 1


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Added some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
