What are the differences between helm-ag and helm-do-ag from a user perspective? I see that helm-do-ag shows the results immediately and helm-ag not. But are there other differences and when is it better to use helm-ag instead of helm-do-ag and vice versa?

  • In helm-ag you can pass command line options to ag, for example to filter filenames with -Gfilename pattern. helm-do-ag doesn't seem to allow this. – student Dec 8 '20 at 12:27
  • Thanks. How about helm-do-grep-ag? What is different there? – Emmanuel Goldstein Jan 15 at 10:04
