vimfiler

A powerful file explorer implemented in Vim script

Introduction

vimfiler is a powerful file explorer ("filer") written in Vim script.

Usage

To start vimfiler, run this command:

:VimFiler

If you set g:vimfiler_as_default_explorer to 1, vimfiler will be used as the default explorer (instead of netrw.)

:let g:vimfiler_as_default_explorer = 1

vimfiler depends on unite.vim.

Please install unite.vim 3.0 or later before you install vimfiler.

Note: To use vimfiler with files larger than 2 GB, vimfiler requires Vim to have Lua support (|if_lua|).
