Building custom regex

This plugin uses ripgrep to search through project files which uses the rust regex syntax.

Ignore files

Ripgrep pays attention to the following files: .rgignore, .ignore and .gitignore. It treats .rgignore-files with higher precedence than .ignore-files and .ignore-files with a higher precedence than `.gitignore. Check also the ripgrep manual out for further reading.
