git grep --untracked
April 3, 2019
Turned out I use
git grep a lot with my VIM (using EasyGrep
plugin). At some point this plugin just stopped to show me all the available results.
Due to lack of explicit
git grep usage it was pretty mysterious.
The reason is that
git grep doesn’t search in untracked files.
If you want to search in untracked files too just add
--untracked option to the command like this:
git grep --untracked SomethingILookingFor *
