Ripgrep aliased as rg


#1

Can I get an official alias for the ripgrep snap to use rg, which is the command per the upstream documentation?


#2

This is for https://dashboard.snapcraft.io/dev/snaps/7511/ (‘ripgrep’ from ‘icey’ publisher). https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep is the upstream and it indeed references ‘rg’.

‘rg’ doesn’t seem to conflict with anything. @icey, what is your relationship with upstream ripgrep?


#3

No relationship, besides opening up the PR to add the snapcraft.yaml. That has now been accepted upstream but I have not yet managed to coordinate adding the author to the collaborators.


#4

@icey - thanks for the feedback and for snapping ripgrep.

+1 for granting the alias.


#5

Sounds like a potential source for conflicts, but seems to be the most well known application for the name, and closely related to the snap name. +1


#6

2 votes for, 0 against. Granting the alias (sorry for the delay in granting this).

This is now granted and live in the store.
