Find-and-replace results from external search tool


Hello everyone,

I think it would be great if find-and-replace could base its search results on the output of a user-defined external search tool, such as grep or google/codesearch, etc.

Of course you could write a package for each external search tool, I just thought it would be convenient if find-and-replace had the capability to integrate these tools and to specify the integration in its configuration.

What do you think?


It looks like we’ve got another use case for a find-and-replace rewrite :slight_smile:


I’d love to be able to click on a failed qunit test (running in grunt) and go straight to the failed test in atom…
