This plugin contributes a view that allows to enter a regular expression, used to produce a grep-like output (shown in the view) of the current text editor. The view shows the original line numbers and when the cursor is moved in the grep output, the cursor in the text editor is moved to the matching line. Any editor that subclasses the AbstractTextEditor should be supported. The current version can optionally link to the current editor (press the double link icon in the view), in this mode the grep is refreshed whenever an editor is activated.
1.0.1 : fixed highlight of matches in grep view.

It would be nice if it worked well with the Dark Theme.

Is it possible to assign hotkey for search? Like ctrl-F to focus on grep's search box.

to change focus from the grep result to the text entry box (and vice-versa) you can use the TAB key.
Ctrl-F is now associated to a simple text search inside the grep result

It's worked now. I'm sure this will benefit others as well.

Hi, I tried this plugin in 3.6 and I really like it. If possible, can you support 3.5 also? I will appreciate it :)

Hi, thanks for trying out the plugin and for your feedback. The new version has the dependency lowered to 3.5, so if you just use the update site you should be able to install it.
