gredit - Grep and Edit
Runs grep (ripgrep's library) in the background, allows interactively pick its results and open selected match in text editor of choice (vim by default).
This is a fork of igrep, with an added context viewer to see the context of your matches. Also, gredit does not exit when you exit your editor.
gredit supports macOS and Linux. Reportedly it works on Windows as well.
