🏆 I provide private lessons on Emacs, Linux, and Life in general: https://protesilaos.com/coach/. Lessons continue throughout the year.

Demo: Emacs ISEARCH features and tweaks

In this screen cast I present some of the more advanced or perhaps less obvious ways of using Emacs’ built-in search tool. isearch is quite a competent tool that can be made even better with some careful additions of elisp.

Based on what I know right now, there is a niche for both isearch and swiper, even though the latter is often used a replacement for the former.

All my customisations are defined in my “dotemacs” file—now provided as a dedicated page inside this website (with links to its source): protesilaos.com/emacs/dotemacs.
