Tagfedora

As a frequent user of grep/ack for the codebase, ag seems to be a silver bullet, especially for the projects with large codebase. Available in rpm repositories.

What’s so great about Ag?

  • It is an order of magnitude faster than ack.
  • It ignores file patterns from your .gitignore and .hgignore.
  • If there are files in your source repo you don’t want to search, just add their patterns to a .ignore file. (*cough* *.min.js *cough*)
  • The command name is 33% shorter than ack, and all keys are on the home row!

Fedy – tweaking your Fedora

Fedy lets you install multimedia codecs and additional software that Fedora doesn’t want to ship, like mp3 support, Adobe Flash, Oracle Java etc.

Soon, soon I’ll get back to Linux, but for now, this link remains here.
