Project Wide Search in Vim

One of the things I don't think Vim handles very well out of the box is project wide, recursive searches. Sure, it has the :grep and :vimgrep commands, but neither of them search recursively by default. You can make them search recursively, but you might then end up seeing many results from directories like .git and node_modules which will clutter up the search results.

This article will show you how to overcome those problems and teach you how to create your own key mappings in Vim.
