Ag search commands now show N lines of context when called with numeric prefix argument N.
Ag search commands can now group output. See
Added a workaround for an ag bug on windows where results were shown
without filenames (see issue #97). Note this only applies when
ag-highlight-search is nil.
Fixed an issue where
ag-projects-regexp escaped its input,
resulting in literal searches rather than regexp searches (see #94).
Detection of project roots now supports bzr.
Replaced calls to
completing-read. This allows helm users to use helm completion. To
continue using ido for completion, please install
ido-ubiquitous-mode. This only affects
Fixed an issue where pressing
k would kill the search results
buffer, even if
evil-mode was active.
k now only kills the
results buffer if you’re not using evil.
Search results buffers now include a summary of the total number of results and the number of files matched.
When choosing a search term, the prompt is now empty. Ag.el will use
the default if no search term is given, but saves a keystroke if you
don’t want the default. You can edit the default value by pressing
M-n in the minibuffer.
ag-search-finished-hook, a hook that’s run when the search
Fixed another case where
ag-dired* commands ignored
Fixed an issue with
ag-dired where inputs would be quoted twice.
ag-ignore-list which allows you specify patterns to ignore.
Fixed a crash with
ag-files when using a built-in file type.
Fixed a bug with
ag-dired* commands where it ignored
Improved alignment of the output from
ag-dired* commands now call
dired-after-readin-hook where appropriate.
Fixed a bug with path name escaping in
Fixed a bug with calling ag on Windows such that you can’t jump to results from the results buffer (you just get ‘No Error Here’).
Minor docs improvements.
When calling ag with a prefix argument, we now place the point after the last argument in the minibuffer. See #48.
Minor docstring improvements.
When passing a prefix argument, ag.el now presents you with the whole command so you can edit any part, as a string. See #38.
Documentation and docstring improvements, mostly around clarifying what regular expression syntax ag.el expects.
Added a setting
ag-executable which allows you to override the name
or path of the ag executable.
Added support for Emacs 23.4.
Buffers created by ag.el are now always named
ag-dired now respects the value of
ag-project-regexp now defaults to the escaped value at point, as an
escaped regular expression. For example, if point is at
then the suggested search regexp is
ag-regexp-project-at-point is now just an obsolete alias for
ag-project-regexp can now take a prefix
argument. For example,
C-u M-x ag. If given a prefix argument, you
are also prompted for the flags to pass ag itself.
ag-project-dired should now work on Mac OS X
(previously we assumed xargs supported GNU extensions).
ag-project-dired to search for files matching a
Fixed a bug in
ag-project-regexp due to an internal
API change (
ag/search now uses keyword arguments).
Note that the internal API changed in this release:
regexp as a keyword argument instead of a positional
argument. I’m not aware of any external packages depending on this, so
I’m not incrementing the major version.
Specifying the path as an argument to ag, allowing ag.el to do searches on Windows.
Fixed a bug with ag.el not searching if
been modified by the user.
ag-project-root-function which allows users to override how
ag.el finds the root of a project.
Ag.el faces (which are
ag-hit-face``x) are defined
with ``defface, so you can use
customize-face on them.
Improved quoting of arguments passed to ag.
Added customisable variable
ag-reuse-window. If set to
nil) then selecting a search result hides the results buffer and
shows the match, rather than using a different window in the frame.
-project functions now handle the case of multiple nested VCS
repositories. Ag.el now takes the most deepest subdirectory, so if
/foo/bar is a subversion repo that contains a git repo
/foo/bar/baz, ag.el will search
Ag.el autopopulates the minibuffer with the text at point, or the active selection. If this text was read-only, the minibuffer text would also be read-only. It’s now always possible to edit the text in the minibuffer.
Fixed a crash when refreshing a search buffer by pressing
close old search result buffers. Also added a customisable variable
ag-reuse-buffers so users can optionally stop ag.el creating
Search results buffers now take the form *ag text:something dir:~/some/path*, so new searches will create new buffers.
ag.el now detects the project root for Mercurial repositories in the
p now move between matches, similar to the
behaviour of dired.
Added a new face
ag-hit-face to distinguish from
previous-error not working with ag.el (broken
ag now has a default search term of the symbol at point.
Search results are now highlighted as information, rather than errors. The ag output is now more consistent with grep.el.
The interactive functions provided by ag.el are now autoloaded.
Removed the unused variable
ag-project-regexp not working in buffers that
aren’t associated with a specific file, such as dired and magit buffers.
The compilation mode regexp is now more accurate, so you should no longer get ‘compilation-next-error: No error here’ when trying to open a file in the results list.
Current stable ag (0.13.1) doesn’t support
--color-match, ag.el now
only highlights when
ag-highlight-search is non-nil (the default is nil).
If you’re upgrading ag.el and your ag version is 0.14 or higher, you need to explicitly enable highlighting:
(setq ag-highlight-search t)
