git grep <pattern> searches for a pattern in a currently selected git branch. This adds :G <pattern> command to run the command from within Vim.
func GitGrep(...) let save = &grepprg set grepprg=git\ grep\ -n\ $* let s = 'grep' for i in a:000 let s = s . ' ' . i endfor exe s let &grepprg = save endfun command -nargs=? G call GitGrep(<f-args>)
You can also limit searching to files matching a pattern (git will do the pattern matching):
:G <pattern> -- '*.c'
The following addition will run git grep on the word under the cursor when Ctrl+X G is pressed.
func GitGrepWord() normal! "zyiw call GitGrep('-w -e ', getreg('z')) endf nmap <C-x>G :call GitGrepWord()<CR>
