Find Things Fast
A mode for emacs that helps you work with projects, hopefully with little to no additional configuration on your part.
FTF should automatically detect your projects in most cases, as it can:
.emacs-projectfiles or emacs23 style
FTF will leverage git utilities for speed when used in a git repository, falling back to find commands when git is unavailable.
ftf-find-file looks in the current project, creates a list of all files that match a user editable list of file extensions, and lets you navigate without worrying about directories. Uses
ido-mode if you have that turned on,
completing-read otherwise. On a git controlled [chromium] checkout, this takes less than one second.
ftf-grepsource greps all files in your project that match the list of file extensions.
gdb from the root of your project.
Sample configuration (from my .emacs):
(require 'find-things-fast) (global-set-key '[f1] 'ftf-find-file) (global-set-key '[f2] 'ftf-grepsource) (global-set-key '[f4] 'ftf-gdb) (global-set-key '[f5] 'ftf-compile)
