I've been enjoying @dspinellis's git-issue. The above commands are for searching and editing local issues created or imported via git-issue.

A quick walkthrough of

  1. greps local issues that contains text, which will be placed at "{}" via skim, ignores tag and comment filenames, and returns the title (xargs head ...)
    grep -lER "{}" .issues/issues/ | grep -v tags | grep -v comments | xargs head -q -n 1')"
  2. display matching issue titles in real time using skim (i.e., sk)
    sk --ansi -i -c 'grep ... '
  3. re-find a desired issue by using the selected issue title (e.g., grep -lR "$(sk --ansi ...)" .issues/issues/) and open it in vim (or your favorite editor)
    vim $(grep -lR "$(sk --ansi ...)" .issues/issues/)
