IBus Custom IME with Ligature?

Reddit - Thu, 2017-11-16 22:42

I am trying to create a Custom IME using IBus for my conlang. It works kind of like Korean in the way the parts of a letter connect as you type them out. Is this at all possible? Also, I'd like to know about the context menu (like with Chinese/Japanese) and how I can implement conversion with it. Thnx.

ag, grep, pt, and sift

Reddit - Thu, 2017-11-16 21:25

So I'm using ag(silver searcher) with fzf and locate through several different scripts and functions. I recently also switched to exa (written in rust) as an ls replacement. I'm loving my work flow. I read on the web site http://sift-tool.org that sift is a faster replacement for ag and you get perl style RE - which I love. However, after several similar queries with both tools sift is far from the speed of ag.

Is there some flag or arrangement of such flags that I'm missing or is this just hype and mostly about some narrow use cases being faster?
