This package browser is in early development. Mind the rough edges.

fzy 1.0

Fast fuzzy text selector for the terminal with an advanced scoring algorithm

Most other fuzzy matchers sort based on the length of a match. fzy tries to find the result the user intended. It does this by favouring matches on consecutive letters and starts of words. This allows matching using acronyms or different parts of the path.

fzy is designed to be used both as an editor plugin and on the command line. Rather than clearing the screen, fzy displays its interface directly below the current cursor position, scrolling the screen if necessary.


Install fzy 1.0 as follows:

guix install fzy@1.0

Or install the latest version:

guix install fzy

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting you user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
