Using Ripgrep

Configure ripgrep

It took me some time to configure this tool. The obvious reason is that there is no default place for the configuration file.

It has to be explicitly set with RIPGREP_CONFIG_PATH environmental variable. Now I can use that as a replacement for the_silver_searcher.

Also remember that there is a tool called rigrep_all that allows you to search all kinds of file, pdf, docs and even zip.
TODO: Explore that and blog about it.
