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.

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for old versions of Ruby on Rails (3.2 and 2.3).
