I've been using swiper-all to search for content in buffers. This works really great as I easily can navigate between the files and select the ones I want to work with. Is there some way I can use a similar interface to search in files on disk. E.g. recursively in current directory.


If you are willing to install RipGrep, counsel-rg (included in counsel) could offer the interface you are looking for.

From its docstring:

Grep for a string in the current directory using rg.

  • This is perfect! :) I can search in the minibuffer, navigate matched files and press enter to open as a buffer. Thanks! – Marcus Oct 7 '20 at 8:10
