Hmm today i finally found a nice TreeExplorer for vim. I was looking for something like this for so long.
- It had to be plugable to the UI and not clutter it
- It had to list the files in a directories of my project
- I wanted to be able to open the files from there to the right side of the window as antoher buffer/tab
There are many plugins out there that solve some of the problems/requirements in the list, but they were not complete. I have tried project(this one was good), the built in explorer, some other explorers, which names i cannot remember .
Enter NERDTree. That is one of the plugins that saves your day. I just put
map <F6> :NERDTreeToggle
in my vimrc and now when i hit F6 i have a list of the files in my home directory. I go to that window with either the mouse or <C-W> w and now i can use the neat features of the plugin.
? - get helpC - make the directory your ROOTo - open/close the directory(this shows the files also in the directory as a list
When you finish don’t forget to hit F6 again
