Ag: Very fast grep replacement

Ag (aka "the silver searcher") is a very fast replacement for grep.

It will parse your .gitignore for additional speedup. To ignore even more files (node_modules, *.min.js etc), add an .agignore with syntax identical to .gitignore.

On Ubuntu 14.04, don't install via apt-get, but build from source to get a current version.

See Faster Grepping in Vim for hints about vim integration.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
