textproc/molybdenum: import package Recursive _search and replace_ CLI application. Powerful search can be found without problems, eg, grep, ack, ag, ripgrep or broot. Tools for replacing recursively in a folder are more difficult to find, although some exist: fart-it. Typically, people use a combination of searching, xargs and a replacement tool like sed or rpl. I use code searching a lot to investigate a large source code base before attempting a replace. Even with 100k files, search is fast and fairly easy. Recursively replacing text is much more dangerous, especially if it requires the combination of several less frequently used tools; it's difficult to remember a search-xargs-replace combination if not used on a daily basis. On top of this, the search tool used to filter the set of files and perform a dry-run, is not per-se using the same search query as the replace tool. After all, these are different tools. It would be better if a single tool could be used for every-day searching and replacing. This is exactly what The Molybdenum Replacer intends to achieve.
