I have used FZF and l’m loving it. Instead of ripgrep I use fd

I have just started my Vim journey few months ago, so I’m really liking your articles 🙂

Interesting. I actually never heard of fd before. Just checked fd GH repo - thanks for the mention!

I believe thatfd and rg (ripgrep) are very different utilities, Sami. fd is more of a find substitute and rg is a substitute for grep or ag (The Silver Searcher). I've had no need to install fd using fzf. Check out videos from The Primeagen and Thoughtbot on Vim. Cheers and enjoy the journey!

Yes, that is true. I just use it with the FZF for finding files as it is faster than find (or at least it feels so).

But I might add ripgrep to get faster grep, haven’t yet used used it so much.

And the ripgrep author suggests to use fd instead when finding files.
