I use exuberant ctags to find definitions of classes, methods and the like. Which packages find the usages of a specific tag? A git grep does not work for me as the result is way to big; many method names are used in multiple locations but the corresponding tags are not related. Thanks for your help!

    With which language are you working with? BTW, exuberant ctags is no longer maintained, you should move to universal ctags instead. – Luc Hermitte Jun 6 '18 at 9:38
  • Oh, I didn't know that, thanks! And it's using git now! Currently I work with ruby (and grape). – jonas-schulze Jun 6 '18 at 9:41
  • GNU Global apparently comes with ruby support. GNU Global provides a cscope interface, gtags-cscope which can find usages. See :h cscope for Vim usage of cscope – Peter Rincker Jun 6 '18 at 14:23
