I currently use tagbar to list all the methods in my php files. However I have to do several steps in order to navigate to a specific method in the file like so: enter image description here

  1. run the keyboard shortcut to display tagbar (F8)
  2. jump from the left pane to the right ctrlw +
  3. search for the said method name or navigate to it using the keyboard

I would like to simply hit a keyboard shortcut, and i would be able to simply fuzzy search the methods in the existing file and jump to it, similar to how the fzf vim plugin lets you fuzzy search files:

  • fzf has :Tags you can try

  • github.com/junegunn/fzf.vim :Tags or :BTags commands

  • the :Tags works perfectly, but when I run :BTags I get this ugly error Error running cat '/var/folders/1b/3wwzdg214cz57k2nccl_9d5c0000gn/T/vxOBh5q/14'|'/Users/abdullah/.vim/bundle/fzf/bin/fzf' '--layout=reverse-list' ' -m' '-d' '\t' '--with-nth' '1,4..'

  • when i run that same command from the CLI, it says: cat: /var/folders/1b/3wwzdg214cz57k2nccl_9d5c0000gn/T/vxOBh5q/14: No such file or directory I imagine fzf should take care of creating that directory right?
