I would like to set up vim-fzf to do git grep/rg/ag/whatever on the word my cursor is over. With vim-grepper I was able to do gsiw for this and it was fantastic. With fzf I can't seem to figure out how to set that up. (My colleague accomplishes the same task by entering <CTRL-R><CTRL-W> at the grep prompt, but I figure this could be done better.)

In general though, for the in word commands, how are they set up? (e.g. yiw, ciw, etc.)

If I had a function foo, how could I send the in word as an argument? i.e. how would I do:

noremap <leader>m :call foo(getreg(*in word*))<cr>

For my specific question, I bet I'll be remapping the call to fzf#vim#grep, but I thought I'd ask this because I don't even know how to properly refer to the in word stuff.

  • In case anyone else is curious about using fzf go do a git grep on the current word, I have the command here – Matt Mar 2 '20 at 18:03

Also see :h expand() for a full list of specials.

  • nice, I'll give this a try with fzf. Thanks! – Matt Feb 28 '20 at 17:01
