Introduction

ELPA MELPA Stable MELPA

Provides a large more easily readable grid for file browsing using ivy.

Users can navigate the grid using Ctrl-f, Ctrl-b, Ctrl-n, Ctrl-p. By pressing , users can enter directories or open files on the screen using avy. Pressing ; will jump to the selected candidate and invoke the dipsatch action dialog. This works because those characters are rarely used for file search. If you have to input them you can still use C-q,, C-q ;.

Heavily inspired by LustyExplorer.
