+The NERD Tree
+The NERD tree allows you to explore your filesystem and to open files and
+directories. It presents the filesystem to you in the form of a tree which you
+manipulate with the keyboard and/or mouse. It also allows you to perform
+simple filesystem operations.
+The following features and functionality are provided by the NERD tree:
+ * Files and directories are displayed in a hierarchical tree structure
+ * Different highlighting is provided for the following types of nodes:
+ * files
+ * directories
+ * sym-links
+ * windows .lnk files
+ * read-only files
+ * executable files
+ * Many (customisable) mappings are provided to manipulate the tree:
+ * Mappings to open/close/explore directory nodes
+ * Mappings to open files in new/existing windows/tabs
+ * Mappings to change the current root of the tree
+ * Mappings to navigate around the tree
+ * ...
+ * Directories and files can be bookmarked.
+ * Most NERD tree navigation can also be done with the mouse
+ * Filtering of tree content (can be toggled at runtime)
+ * custom file filters to prevent e.g. vim backup files being displayed
+ * optional displaying of hidden files (. files)
+ * files can be "turned off" so that only directories are displayed
+ * The position and size of the NERD tree window can be customised
+ * The order in which the nodes in the tree are listed can be customised.
+ * A model of your filesystem is created/maintained as you explore it. This
+ has several advantages:
+ * All filesystem information is cached and is only re-read on demand
+ * If you revisit a part of the tree that you left earlier in your
+ session, the directory nodes will be opened/closed as you left them
+ * The script remembers the cursor position and window position in the NERD
+ tree so you can toggle it off (or just close the tree window) and then
+ reopen it (with NERDTreeToggle) the NERD tree window will appear exactly
+ as you left it
+ * You can have a separate NERD tree for each tab, share trees across tabs,
+ or a mix of both.
+ * By default the script overrides the default file browser (netw), so if
+ you :edit a directory a (slighly modified) NERD tree will appear in the
+ current window
+ * A programmable menu system is provided (simulates right clicking on a node)
+ * one default menu plugin is provided to perform basic filesytem
+ operations (create/delete/move/copy files/directories)
+ * There's an API for adding your own keymappings
+[pathogen.vim]( is the recommended way to install nerdtree.
+ cd ~/.vim/bundle
+ git clone
+Then reload vim, run `:helptags`, and check out `:help NERD_tree.txt`.
+__Q. Can I have the nerdtree on every tab automatically?__
+A. Nope. If this is something you want then chances are you aren't using tabs
+ and buffers as they were intended to be used. Read this
+ If you are interested in this behaviour then consider [vim-nerdtree-tabs](
+__Q. How can I open a NERDTree automatically when vim starts up?__
+A. Stick this in your vimrc: `autocmd vimenter * NERDTree`
+__Q. How can I open a NERDTree automatically when vim starts up if no files were specified?__
+A. Stick this in your vimrc `autocmd vimenter * if !argc() | NERDTree | endif`
+__Q. How can I close vim if the only window left open is a NERDTree?__
+A. Stick this in your vimrc:
+ `autocmd bufenter * if (winnr("$") == 1 && exists("b:NERDTreeType") && b:NERDTreeType == "primary") | q | endif`
+4.2.0 (2011-12-28)
+ * Add NERDTreeDirArrows option to make the UI use pretty arrow chars instead of the old +~| chars to define the tree structure (sickill)
+ * shift the syntax highlighting out into its own syntax file (gnap) * add some mac specific options to the filesystem menu - for macvim only (andersonfreitas)
+ * Add NERDTreeMinimalUI option to remove some non functional parts of the nerdtree ui (camthompson)
+ * tweak the behaviour of :NERDTreeFind - see :help :NERDTreeFind for the new behaviour (benjamingeiger)
+ * if no name is given to :Bookmark, make it default to the name of the target file/dir (minyoung)
+ * use 'file' completion when doing copying, create, and move operations (EvanDotPro)
+ * lots of misc bug fixes (paddyoloughlin, sdewald, camthompson, Vitaly Bogdanov, AndrewRadev, mathias, scottstvnsn, kml, wycats, me RAWR!)
Oops, something went wrong.
