I'm trying to use helm-projectile-grep function on Windows 7, but it searches in every file, though in .projectile I excluded file types which I don't want to work with. Do I have to configure grep separately and how to do this? May be I should put something in pattern for grep? Thanks for advice.

  • projectile-grep takes account of excluded file types in .projectile, while helm-projectile-grep doesn't, actually helm-projectile-grep doesn't have the capability to ignore certain file types at all. And you can't configure grep, there is no .greprc or .grepignore for grep. You also can't exclude certain file types in helm-projectile-grep's search pattern, it is not supported since it's hard to implement and doesn't worth. – xuchunyang Nov 2 '15 at 11:18
  • As I see projectile-grep working exactly the same and it doesn't exclude file types. E.g. in my .projectile file I have a string "-*.lst" and by idea these files should be excluded from grep, but not it's still giving me results from these files – cy8g3n Nov 2 '15 at 11:33

    Sorry, my previous comment is totally wrong: both projectile-grep and helm-projectile-grep should take account of .projectile, however, -/*.lst should work instead of -*.lst, I don't really understand related documentation of projectile. – xuchunyang Nov 2 '15 at 12:35

    Yes it works, thanks a lot. If you put it for answer I'll mark it. Shame there is a mistake in official documentation. – cy8g3n Nov 2 '15 at 13:33
