Description Project management library
Author Bozhidar Batsov
Maintainer Bozhidar Batsov

Projectile is a project interaction library for Emacs. Its goal is to provide a nice set of features operating on a project level without introducing external dependencies. For instance - finding project files is done in pure Emacs Lisp without the use of GNU find.

This library provides easy project management and navigation. The concept of a project is pretty basic - just a folder containing special file. Currently git, mercurial and bazaar repos are considered projects by default. If you want to mark a folder manually as a project just create an empty .projectile file in it. Some of projectile's features:

  • jump to a file in project
  • jump to a project buffer
  • multi-occur in project buffers
  • grep in project
  • regenerate project etags

Basic setup

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/projectile/directory")
(require 'projectile)
(projectile-global-mode) ;; to enable in all buffers

Helpful keybindings

[C-c p f]
Find a file in the project.
[C-c p g]
Find text matches in the project

Common Customization

Enable caching

Indexing a large project can take a while. You can enable caching to prevent additional reindexing.
