This plugin is a front for grin, the python version of Ack. Grin can be used as a replacement for grep, it will allow you to run grin from vim, get the results in a split window and open them right in the editor.
install details

Install grin at OS level, user levle or even on a virtualenv:

Global install

$ sudo pip install grin

User install:

$ pip install --user grin

You can specify a custom grin name and path in your .vimrc like so:

The Plugin

If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

$ cd ~/.vim/bundle
$ git clone git://github.com/santiycr/grin.vim.git
