As an alternative to ag ("the silver searcher"), I'd like to install rg (RipGrep) on my Fedora 26, but I can't find it with

dnf search ripgrep
dnf search rg

Do you know a community repository that contains it?

Thanks in advance.


For Fedora 26, 25, or 24, RipGrep (rg) is available from a copr repository:

sudo dnf copr enable carlwgeorge/ripgrep
sudo dnf install ripgrep

If you're a Fedora 27+ user, you can install ripgrep from official repositories:

sudo dnf install ripgrep

For more information, here's the GitHub repository for RipGrep.
