Hi there and thanks for sharing your Vim plugins with us.

What are the key differences for choosing Rg over vimgrep for instance? I have always found vimgrep to do the job just fine for now. What is your opinion on that one?

Hey Amin! The main and possibly only argument worth noting would be speed. If you use Rg you'll really notice a speed difference, but mainly in big projects. You can map vimgrep to Rg too if you want.

Remember though, this is all preference, use what you like best - thats the beauty of vim!
