Batch file edits.

Our review

What we like

Make text edits across many files in one go. Can be connected to fzf and a highlighter/pager to show the edits visually. Previews the changes by default so you can verify. Or pass a commit flag to make the changes right away. Supports regex replacements.

What we don't like

Requires some additional tools like fzf and a highlighter to improve the UX, but this is really just the Unix philosophy of doing one thing well and deferring to other tools for the rest!
