What would you like to do?
ctags setup on mac
# you have ctags but it does not work...
$ ctags -R --exclude=.git --exclude=log *
ctags: illegal option -- R
usage: ctags [-BFadtuwvx] [-f tagsfile] file ...
#you need to get new ctags, i recommend homebrew but anything will work
$ brew install ctags
#alias ctags if you used homebrew
$ alias ctags="`brew --prefix`/bin/ctags"
#try again!
ctags -R --exclude=.git --exclude=log *
#puts tags file into you .gitignore (probably global) and you're all set!
#PS. i was inspired to install ctags by https://workshops.thoughtbot.com/vim video by @r00k, thanks man!
