I'm searching my project with ag.el, and it shows the search results in a compilation mode window. When I select a result in the compilation mode window it replaces the buffer in that window with buffer containing the search result. So I can no longer see the index of search results.

How would I configure it to show the search result in a second window, and keep the window of search results open beside it?

  • Popular completion frameworks have this functionality where you press some key in the transient candidate list and then the candidates are listed in an (built-in) occur-mode buffer, where you can jump to a candidate in a new buffer/window. I'm using ivy and it has this built in, seems helm has this built in too
