1. Intro *NERDTree*
What is this "NERDTree"??
The NERDTree 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 NERDTree:
* 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 NERDTree 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 NERDTree 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 NERDTree window will appear exactly
as you left it
* You can have a separate NERDTree for each tab, share trees across tabs,
or a mix of both.
* By default the script overrides the default file browser (netrw), so if
you :edit a directory a (slightly modified) NERDTree 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 filesystem
operations (create/delete/move/copy files/directories)
* There's an API for adding your own keymappings
==============================================================================
2. Functionality provided *NERDTreeFunctionality*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.1. Global Commands *NERDTreeGlobalCommands*
:NERDTree [<start-directory> | <bookmark>] *:NERDTree*
Opens a fresh NERDTree. The root of the tree depends on the argument
given. There are 3 cases: If no argument is given, the current directory
will be used. If a directory is given, that will be used. If a bookmark
name is given, the corresponding directory will be used. For example: >
:NERDTree /home/marty/vim7/src
:NERDTree foo (foo is the name of a bookmark)
<
:NERDTreeVCS [<start-directory> | <bookmark>] *:NERDTreeVCS*
Like |:NERDTree|, but searches up the directory tree to find the top of
the version control system repository, and roots the NERDTree there. It
works with Git, Subversion, Mercurial, Bazaar, and Darcs repositories. A
couple of examples: >
:NERDTreeVCS /home/marty/nerdtree/doc (opens /home/marty/nerdtree)
:NERDTreeVCS (opens root of repository containing CWD)
<
:NERDTreeFromBookmark <bookmark> *:NERDTreeFromBookmark*
Opens a fresh NERDTree with the root initialized to the dir for
<bookmark>. The only reason to use this command over :NERDTree is for
the completion (which is for bookmarks rather than directories).
:NERDTreeToggle [<start-directory> | <bookmark>] *:NERDTreeToggle*
If a NERDTree already exists for this tab, it is reopened and rendered
again. If no NERDTree exists for this tab then this command acts the
same as the |:NERDTree| command.
:NERDTreeToggleVCS [<start-directory> | <bookmark>] *:NERDTreeToggleVCS*
Like |:NERDTreeToggle|, but searches up the directory tree to find the top of
the version control system repository, and roots the NERDTree there. It
works with Git, Subversion, Mercurial, Bazaar, and Darcs repositories. A
couple of examples: >
:NERDTreeToggleVCS /home/marty/nerdtree/doc (opens /home/marty/nerdtree)
:NERDTreeToggleVCS (opens root of repository containing CWD)
:NERDTreeFocus *:NERDTreeFocus*
Opens (or reopens) the NERDTree if it is not currently visible;
otherwise, the cursor is moved to the already-open NERDTree.
:NERDTreeMirror *:NERDTreeMirror*
Shares an existing NERDTree, from another tab, in the current tab.
Changes made to one tree are reflected in both as they are actually the
same buffer.
If only one other NERDTree exists, that tree is automatically mirrored.
If more than one exists, the script will ask which tree to mirror.
:NERDTreeClose *:NERDTreeClose*
Close the NERDTree in this tab.
:NERDTreeFind [<path>] *:NERDTreeFind*
Without the optional argument, find and reveal the file for the active
buffer in the NERDTree window. With the <path> argument, find and
reveal the specified path.
Focus will be shifted to the NERDTree window, and the cursor will be
placed on the tree node for the determined path. If a NERDTree for the
current tab does not exist, a new one will be initialized.
:NERDTreeCWD *:NERDTreeCWD*
Change the NERDTree root to the current working directory. If no
NERDTree exists for this tab, a new one is opened.
:NERDTreeRefreshRoot *:NERDTreeRefreshRoot*
Refreshes the NERDTree root node.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2. Bookmarks *NERDTreeBookmarks*
Bookmarks in the NERDTree are a way to tag files or directories of interest.
For example, you could use bookmarks to tag all of your project directories.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2.1. The Bookmark Table *NERDTreeBookmarkTable*
If the bookmark table is active (see |NERDTree-B| and
|NERDTreeShowBookmarks|), it will be rendered above the tree. You can double
click bookmarks or use the |NERDTree-o| mapping to activate them. See also,
|NERDTree-t| and |NERDTree-T|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2.2. Bookmark commands *NERDTreeBookmarkCommands*
Note: The following commands are only available within the NERDTree buffer.
:Bookmark [<name>]
Bookmark the current node as <name>. If there is already a <name>
bookmark, it is overwritten. <name> must not contain spaces.
If <name> is not provided, it defaults to the file or directory name.
For directories, a trailing slash is present.
:BookmarkToRoot <bookmark>
Make the directory corresponding to <bookmark> the new root. If a treenode
corresponding to <bookmark> is already cached somewhere in the tree then
the current tree will be used, otherwise a fresh tree will be opened.
Note that if <bookmark> points to a file then its parent will be used
instead.
:RevealBookmark <bookmark>
If the node is cached under the current root then it will be revealed
(i.e. directory nodes above it will be opened) and the cursor will be
placed on it.
:OpenBookmark <name>
The Bookmark named <name> is opened as if |NERDTree-o| was applied to
its entry in the Bookmark table. If the Bookmark points to a directory,
it is made the new root of the current NERDTree. If the Bookmark points
to a file, that file is opened for editing in another window.
:ClearBookmarks [<bookmarks>]
Remove all the given bookmarks. If no bookmarks are given then remove all
bookmarks on the current node.
:ClearAllBookmarks
Remove all bookmarks.
:EditBookmarks
Opens the bookmarks file for manual editing, e.g. for removing invalid
bookmarks.
:ReadBookmarks
Re-read the bookmarks in the |NERDTreeBookmarksFile|.
See also |:NERDTree| and |:NERDTreeFromBookmark|.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2.3. Invalid Bookmarks *NERDTreeInvalidBookmarks*
If invalid bookmarks are detected, the script will issue an error message and
the invalid bookmarks will become unavailable for use.
These bookmarks will still be stored in the bookmarks file (see
|NERDTreeBookmarksFile|), down at the bottom. There will always be a blank line
after the valid bookmarks but before the invalid ones.
Each line in the bookmarks file represents one bookmark. The proper format is:
<bookmark name><space><full path to the bookmark location>
You can use the :EditBookmarks command to open the bookmarks file for editing.
After you have corrected any invalid bookmarks, either restart vim, or run
:ReadBookmarks from the NERDTree window.

2.3. The NERDTree menu *NERDTreeMenu*
The NERDTree has a menu that can be programmed via the an API (see
|NERDTreeMenuAPI|). The idea is to simulate the "right click" menus that most
file explorers have.
The script comes with two default menu plugins: exec_menuitem.vim and
fs_menu.vim. fs_menu.vim adds some basic filesystem operations to the menu for
creating/deleting/moving/copying files and dirs. exec_menuitem.vim provides a
menu item to execute executable files.

let <setting>=<value>
<line in your ~/.vimrc.
*loaded_nerd_tree*
If this plugin is making you feel homicidal, it may be a good idea to turn it
off with this line in your vimrc: >
let loaded_nerd_tree=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeAutoCenter*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 1
If set to 1, the NERDTree window will center around the cursor if it moves to
within |NERDTreeAutoCenterThreshold| lines of the top/bottom of the window.
This is ONLY done in response to tree navigation mappings,
i.e. |NERDTree-J| |NERDTree-K| |NERDTree-C-J| |NERDTree-C-K| |NERDTree-p|
|NERDTree-P|
The centering is done with a |zz| operation.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeAutoCenterThreshold*
Values: Any natural number.
Default: 3
This setting controls the "sensitivity" of the NERDTree auto centering. See
|NERDTreeAutoCenter| for details.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeCaseSensitiveSort*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
By default the NERDTree does not sort nodes case sensitively, i.e. nodes
could appear like this: >
bar.c
Baz.c
blarg.c
boner.c
Foo.c
<
But, if you set this setting to 1 then the case of the nodes will be taken
into account. The above nodes would then be sorted like this: >
Baz.c
Foo.c
bar.c
blarg.c
boner.c
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeNaturalSort*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
By default the NERDTree does not sort nodes in natural sort order, i.e. nodes
could appear like this: >
z1.txt
z10.txt
z100.txt
z11.txt
z110.txt
z2.txt
z20.txt
z3.txt
<
But if you set this setting to 1 then the natural sort order will be used. The
above nodes would then be sorted like this: >
z1.txt
z2.txt
z3.txt
z10.txt
z11.txt
z20.txt
z100.txt
z110.txt
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeUseTCD*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
By default, NERDTree will use the `:cd` command to change the current working
directory. If this setting is turned on, and the `:tcd` command is available, it
will be used instead.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeChDirMode*
Values: 0, 1, 2, or 3.
Default: 0.
Use this setting to tell the script when (if at all) to change the current
working directory (CWD) for vim.
If it is set to 0 then the CWD is never changed by the NERDTree.
If set to 1 then the CWD is changed when the NERDTree is first loaded to the
directory it is initialized in. For example, if you start the NERDTree with >
:NERDTree /home/marty/foobar
<
then the CWD will be changed to /home/marty/foobar and will not be changed
again unless you init another NERDTree with a similar command.
If the setting is set to 2 then it behaves the same as if set to 1 except that
the CWD is changed whenever the tree root is changed. For example, if the CWD
is /home/marty/foobar and you make the node for /home/marty/foobar/baz the new
root then the CWD will become /home/marty/foobar/baz.
If the set to 3, then it behaves the same as if set to 2, and the CWD is
changed whenever changing tabs to whatever the tree root is on that tab.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeHighlightCursorline*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 1.
If set to 1, the current cursor line in the NERDTree buffer will be
highlighted. This is done using the `'cursorline'` Vim option.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeHijackNetrw*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 1.
If set to 1, doing a >
:edit <some directory>
<
will open up a window level NERDTree instead of a netrw in the target window.
Window level trees behaves slightly different from a regular trees in the
following respects:
1. 'o' will open the selected file in the same window as the tree,
replacing it.
2. you can have one tree per window - instead of per tab.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeIgnore*
Values: a list of regular expressions.
Default: ['\~$'].
This setting is used to specify which files the NERDTree should ignore. It
must be a list of regular expressions. When the NERDTree is rendered, any
files/dirs that match any of the regex's in NERDTreeIgnore won't be
displayed.
For example if you put the following line in your vimrc: >
let NERDTreeIgnore=['\.vim$', '\~$']
<
then all files ending in .vim or ~ will be ignored.
There are 2 magic flags that can be appended to the end of each regular
expression to specify that the regex should match only files or only dirs.
These flags are "[[dir]]" and "[[file]]". Example: >
let NERDTreeIgnore=['\.d$[[dir]]', '\.o$[[file]]']
<
This will cause all dirs ending in ".d" to be ignored and all files ending in
".o" to be ignored.
Note: to tell the NERDTree not to ignore any files you must use the following
line: >
let NERDTreeIgnore=[]
<
The file filters can be turned on and off dynamically with the |NERDTree-f|
mapping.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeRespectWildIgnore*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
If set to 1, the `'wildignore'` setting is respected.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeBookmarksFile*
Values: a path
Default: $HOME/.NERDTreeBookmarks
This is where bookmarks are saved. See |NERDTreeBookmarkCommands|.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeBookmarksSort*
Values: 0, 1, or 2
Default: 1
This setting controls the method by which the list of user bookmarks is
sorted. When sorted, bookmarks will render in alphabetical order by name.
If set to 0, the bookmarks list is not sorted.
If set to 1, the bookmarks list is sorted in a case-insensitive manner.
If set to 2, the bookmarks list is sorted in a case-sensitive manner.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeMarkBookmarks*
Values: 0 or 1
Default: 1
If set to 1, Bookmarks will be specially marked whenever the NERDTree is
rendered. Users of the |NERDTreeMinimalUI| setting may prefer to disable
this setting for even less visual clutter.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeMouseMode*
Values: 1, 2 or 3.
Default: 1.
If set to 1 then a double click on a node is required to open it.
If set to 2 then a single click will open directory nodes, while a double
click will still be required for file nodes.
If set to 3 then a single click will open any node.
Note: a double click anywhere on a line that a tree node is on will
activate it, but all single-click activations must be done on name of the node
itself. For example, if you have the following node: >
| | |-application.rb
<
then (to single click activate it) you must click somewhere in
'application.rb'.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeQuitOnOpen*
Values: 0,1,2 or 3.
Default: 0
This setting governs whether the NERDTree window or the bookmarks table closes
after opening a file with the |NERDTree-o|, |NERDTree-i|, |NERDTree-t| and
|NERDTree-T| mappings.
Value | NERDTree Window Behavior
-------+-------------------------------------------------------
0 | No change
1 | Closes after opening a file
2 | Closes the bookmark table after opening a bookmark
3(1+2) | Same as both 1 and 2
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeShowBookmarks*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
If this setting is set to 1 then the bookmarks table will be displayed.
This setting can be toggled dynamically, per tree, with the |NERDTree-B|
mapping.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeShowFiles*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 1.
If this setting is set to 1 then files are displayed in the NERDTree. If it
is set to 0 then only directories are displayed.
This setting can be toggled dynamically, per tree, with the |NERDTree-F|
mapping and is useful for drastically shrinking the tree when you are
navigating to a different part of the tree.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeShowHidden*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
This setting tells vim whether to display hidden files by default. This
setting can be dynamically toggled, per tree, with the |NERDTree-I| mapping.
Use one of the follow lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeShowHidden=0
let NERDTreeShowHidden=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeShowLineNumbers*
Values: 0 or 1.
Default: 0.
This setting tells vim whether to display line numbers for the NERDTree
window. Use one of the follow lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeShowLineNumbers=0
let NERDTreeShowLineNumbers=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeSortOrder*
Values: a list of regular expressions.
Default: ['\/$', '*', '\.swp$', '\.bak$', '\~$']
This setting is a list of regular expressions which are used to group or sort
the nodes under their parent.
For example, if the setting is: >
['\.vim$', '\.c$', '\.h$', '*', 'foobar']
<
then all .vim files will be grouped at the top, followed by all .c files then
all .h files. All files containing the string 'foobar' will be placed at the
end. The star is a special flag: it tells the script that every node that
doesn't match any of the other regexps should be placed here.
If no star is present in NERDTreeSortOrder, then one is automatically
appended to the end of the list.
The regex '\/$' should be used to match directory nodes.
Files can also be sorted by 1) the modification timestamp, 2) the size, or 3)
the extension. Directories are always sorted by name. To accomplish this, the
following special flags are used:
[[timestamp]] [[-timestamp]] [[size]] [[-size]] [[extension]]
The hyphen specifies a descending sort; extensions are sorted in ascending
order only. If placed at the beginning of the list, files are sorted according
to these flags first, and then grouped by the remaining items in the list. If
the flags are in any other position of the list, this special sorting is done
secondarily. See examples 4, 5, and 6 below.
After this sorting is done, the files in each group are sorted alphabetically.
Examples: >
(1) ['*', '\/$']
(2) []
(3) ['\/$', '\.rb$', '\.php$', '*', '\.swp$', '\.bak$', '\~$']
(4) ['[[-size]]']
(5) ['\/$', '*', '[[timestamp]]']
(6) ['foo','\/$','[[extension]]']
<
1. Directories will appear last, everything else will appear above.
2. Everything will simply appear in alphabetical order.
3. Dirs will appear first, then ruby and php. Swap files, bak files and vim
backup files will appear last with everything else preceding them.
4. Everything is sorted by size, largest to smallest, with directories
considered to have size 0 bytes.
5. Directories will appear first alphabetically, followed by files, sorted by
timestamp, oldest first.
6. Files and directories matching 'foo' first, followed by other directories,
then all other files. Each section of files is sorted by file extension.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeStatusline*
Values: Any valid `'statusline'` setting.
Default: %{exists('b:NERDTree')?b:NERDTree.root.path.str():''}
Defines the value for the `'statusline'` setting in NERDTree windows.
Note: The setting is actually applied using |:let-&|, not |:set|, so
escaping spaces is not necessary.
Setting this to -1 will deactivate it so that your global `'statusline'`
setting is used.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeWinPos*
Values: "left" or "right"
Default: "left".
This setting is used to determine where NERDTree window is placed on the
screen.
This setting makes it possible to use two different explorer plugins
simultaneously. For example, you could have the taglist plugin on the left of
the window and the NERDTree on the right.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeWinSize*
Values: a positive integer.
Default: 31.
This setting is used to change the size of the NERDTree when it is loaded.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeMinimalUI*
Values: 0 or 1
Default: 0
This setting disables the 'Bookmarks' label 'Press ? for help' text. Use one
of the following lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeMinimalUI=0
let NERDTreeMinimalUI=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeMinimalMenu*
Values: 0 or 1
Default: 0
This setting makes NERDTree use a smaller, more compact menu for adding,
copying, deleting nodes. This menu fits on a single line so Vim doesn't need to
scroll down to present it. This setting is recommended for users already
familiar with the menu items. It will look similar to this:
Menu: [ (a)dd ,m,d,r,o,q,c,l] (Use j/k/enter or shortcut):
An action can be selected with its shortcut key or with the NERDTreeMenuUp and
NERDTreeMenuDown keys, then pressing enter.
Use one of the following lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeMinimalMenu=0
let NERDTreeMinimalMenu=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeCascadeSingleChildDir*
Values: 0 or 1
Default: 1.
When displaying dir nodes, this setting tells NERDTree to collapse dirs that
have only one child. Use one of the following lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeCascadeSingleChildDir=0
let NERDTreeCascadeSingleChildDir=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeCascadeOpenSingleChildDir*
Values: 0 or 1
Default: 1.
When opening dir nodes, this setting tells NERDTree to recursively open dirs
that have only one child which is also a dir. NERDTree will stop when it finds
a dir that contains anything but another single dir. This setting also causes
the |NERDTree-x| mapping to close dirs in the same manner. This setting may be
useful for Java projects. Use one of the following lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeCascadeOpenSingleChildDir=0
let NERDTreeCascadeOpenSingleChildDir=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeAutoDeleteBuffer*
Values: 0 or 1
Default: 0.
When using a context menu to delete or rename a file you may also want to
delete the buffer which is no more valid. If the setting is not set you will
see a confirmation if you really want to delete an old buffer. If you always
press 'y' then it's worth it to set this setting to 1. Use one of the
following lines for this setting: >
let NERDTreeAutoDeleteBuffer=0
let NERDTreeAutoDeleteBuffer=1
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeCreatePrefix*
Values: Any valid command prefix.
Default: "silent".
Internally, NERDTree uses the |:edit| command to create a buffer in which to
display its tree view. You can augment this behavior by specifying a prefix
string such as "keepalt" or similar. For example, to have NERDTree create its
tree window using `silent keepalt keepjumps edit`: >
let NERDTreeCreatePrefix='silent keepalt keepjumps'
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeDirArrowCollapsible* *NERDTreeDirArrowExpandable*
Values: Any single character.
Defaults: Windows: ~ and + Others: ▾ and ▸
These characters indicate whether a directory is collapsible or expandable.
They can be set to "\u00a0" to hide the arrows, but if you do this you may
need to change the node delimiter. See |NERDTreeNodeDelimiter|. You cannot use
the same character for both the arrows and the delimiter. Example: >
let NERDTreeDirArrowExpandable=">"
let NERDTreeDirArrowCollapsible="v"
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeNodeDelimiter*
Values: Any single character.
Default: varies (see below)
This character is used to separate the file or directory name from the rest of
the characters in the line of text. It allows filenames to contain special
characters that are otherwise used in the NERDTree, such as square brackets,
braces, trailing asterisk, and leading space. For more details, see the
responsible pull request: https://github.com/scrooloose/nerdtree/pull/868.
The default value of this variable depends on the features compiled into your
vim and the values of |NERDTreeDirArrowCollapsible| and
|NERDTreeDirArrowExpandable|.
* If your vim is compiled with the +conceal feature, it is the "\x07" (BELL)
character, and it is hidden by setting 'conceallevel' to 3. If you use
autocommands, make sure none of them change that setting in the NERDTree_*
buffers.
* If your vim does NOT have the +conceal feature and you're using "\u00a0"
(non-breaking space) to hide the directory arrows, "\u00b7" (middle dot)
is used as the default delimiter.
* If neither condition above applies, NERDTree uses "\u00a0" (non-breaking
space) as the default delimiter.
In the 2nd and 3rd cases, NERDTree will use the Ignore highlight group to
"hide" the delimiter. It should appear as an empty space.
Other plugins can interfere with these defaults, so if you need to change the
delimiter, be sure to choose a character that won't appear in your filenames
or any of the flags set by your installed NERDTree plugins. The suggestions
below are but a few of the many possibilities. Remember to use double quotes
when specifying by hex or Unicode. >
let NERDTreeNodeDelimiter="\x07" "bell
let NERDTreeNodeDelimiter="\u00b7" "middle dot
let NERDTreeNodeDelimiter="\u00a0" "non-breaking space
let NERDTreeNodeDelimiter="😀" "smiley face
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NERDTreeCustomOpenArgs*
Values: A nested dictionary, as described below
Default: {'file': {'reuse': 'all', 'where': 'p'}, 'dir': {}}
This dictionary contains two keys, 'file' and 'dir', whose values each are
another dictionary. The inner dictionary is a set of parameters used by
|NERDTree-<CR>| to open a file or directory. Setting these parameters allows you
to customize the way the node is opened. The default value matches what
|NERDTree-o| does. To change that behavior, use these keys and
values in the inner dictionaries:
'where': specifies whether the node should be opened in a new split ("h" or
"v"), in a new tab ("t") or, in the last window ("p").
'reuse': if file is already shown in a window, jump there; takes values
"all", "currenttab", or empty
'keepopen': boolean (0 or 1); if true, the tree window will not be closed
'stay': boolean (0 or 1); if true, remain in tree window after opening
For example:
To open files and directories (creating a new NERDTree) in a new tab, >
{'file':{'where': 't'}, 'dir':{'where':'t'}}
<
To open a file always in the current tab, and expand directories in place, >
{'file': {'reuse':'currenttab', 'where':'p', 'keepopen':1, 'stay':1}}
<
==============================================================================
4. The NERDTree API *NERDTreeAPI*
The NERDTree script allows you to add custom key mappings and menu items via
a set of API calls. Any scripts that use this API should be placed in
~/.vim/nerdtree_plugin/ (*nix) or ~/vimfiles/nerdtree_plugin (windows).
The script exposes some prototype objects that can be used to manipulate the
tree and/or get information from it: >
g:NERDTreePath
g:NERDTreeDirNode
g:NERDTreeFileNode
g:NERDTreeBookmark
<
See the code/comments in NERD_tree.vim to find how to use these objects. The
following code conventions are used:
* class members start with a capital letter
* instance members start with a lower case letter
* private members start with an underscore
See this blog post for more details:
http://got-ravings.blogspot.com/2008/09/vim-pr0n-prototype-based-objects.html
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1. Key map API *NERDTreeKeymapAPI*
NERDTreeAddKeyMap({options}) *NERDTreeAddKeyMap()*
Adds a new keymapping for all NERDTree buffers.
{options} must be a dictionary, and must contain the following keys:
"key" - the trigger key for the new mapping
"callback" - the function the new mapping will be bound to
"quickhelpText" - the text that will appear in the quickhelp (see
|NERDTree-?|)
"override" - if 1 then this new mapping will override whatever previous
mapping was defined for the key/scope combo. Useful for overriding the
default mappings.
Additionally, a "scope" argument may be supplied. This constrains the
mapping so that it is only activated if the cursor is on a certain object.
That object is then passed into the handling method. Possible values are:
"FileNode" .... a file node
"DirNode" ..... a directory node
"Node" ........ a file node OR a directory node
"Bookmark" .... a bookmark
"all" ......... global scope; handler receives no arguments (default)
Example: >
call NERDTreeAddKeyMap({
\ 'key': 'foo',
\ 'callback': 'NERDTreeCDHandler',
\ 'quickhelpText': 'echo full path of current node',
\ 'scope': 'DirNode' })
function! NERDTreeCDHandler(dirnode)
call a:dirnode.changeToDir()
endfunction
<
This code should sit in a file like ~/.vim/nerdtree_plugin/mymapping.vim.
It adds a (redundant) mapping on 'foo' which changes vim's CWD to that of
the current dir node. Note this mapping will only fire when the cursor is
on a directory node.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.2. Menu API *NERDTreeMenuAPI*
NERDTreeAddSubmenu({options}) *NERDTreeAddSubmenu()*
Creates and returns a new submenu.
{options} must be a dictionary and must contain the following keys:
"text" - the text of the submenu that the user will see
"shortcut" - a shortcut key for the submenu (need not be unique)
The following keys are optional:
"isActiveCallback" - a function that will be called to determine whether
this submenu item will be displayed or not. The callback function must
return 0 or 1.
"parent" - the parent submenu of the new submenu (returned from a previous
invocation of NERDTreeAddSubmenu()). If this key is left out then the new
submenu will sit under the top level menu.
See below for an example.
NERDTreeAddMenuItem({options}) *NERDTreeAddMenuItem()*
Adds a new menu item to the NERDTree menu (see |NERDTreeMenu|).
{options} must be a dictionary and must contain the
following keys:
"text" - the text of the menu item which the user will see
"shortcut" - a shortcut key for the menu item (need not be unique)
"callback" - the function that will be called when the user activates the
menu item.
The following keys are optional:
"isActiveCallback" - a function that will be called to determine whether
this menu item will be displayed or not. The callback function must return
0 or 1.
"parent" - if the menu item belongs under a submenu then this key must be
specified. This value for this key will be the object that
was returned when the submenu was created with |NERDTreeAddSubmenu()|.
See below for an example.
NERDTreeAddMenuSeparator([{options}]) *NERDTreeAddMenuSeparator()*
Adds a menu separator (a row of dashes).
{options} is an optional dictionary that may contain the following keys:
"isActiveCallback" - see description in |NERDTreeAddMenuItem()|.
Below is an example of the menu API in action. >
call NERDTreeAddMenuSeparator()
call NERDTreeAddMenuItem({
\ 'text': 'a (t)op level menu item',
\ 'shortcut': 't',
\ 'callback': 'SomeFunction' })
let submenu = NERDTreeAddSubmenu({
\ 'text': 'a (s)ub menu',
\ 'shortcut': 's' })
call NERDTreeAddMenuItem({
\ 'text': '(n)ested item 1',
\ 'shortcut': 'n',
\ 'callback': 'SomeFunction',
\ 'parent': submenu })
call NERDTreeAddMenuItem({
\ 'text': '(n)ested item 2',
\ 'shortcut': 'n',
\ 'callback': 'SomeFunction',
\ 'parent': submenu })
<
This will create the following menu: >
--------------------
a (t)op level menu item
a (s)ub menu
<
Where selecting "a (s)ub menu" will lead to a second menu: >
(n)ested item 1
(n)ested item 2
<
When any of the 3 concrete menu items are selected the function "SomeFunction"
will be called.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.3 NERDTreeAddPathFilter(callback) *NERDTreeAddPathFilter()*
Path filters are essentially a more powerful version of |NERDTreeIgnore|.
If the simple regex matching in |NERDTreeIgnore| is not enough then use
|NERDTreeAddPathFilter()| to add a callback function that paths will be
checked against when the decision to ignore them is made. Example >
call NERDTreeAddPathFilter('MyFilter')
function! MyFilter(params)
"params is a dict containing keys: 'nerdtree' and 'path' which are
"g:NERDTree and g:NERDTreePath objects
"return 1 to ignore params['path'] or 0 otherwise
endfunction
<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4 Path Listener API *NERDTreePathListenerAPI*
Use this API if you want to run a callback for events on Path objects. E.G >
call g:NERDTreePathNotifier.AddListener("init", "MyListener")
"....
function! MyListener(event)
"This function will be called whenever a Path object is created.
"a:event is an object that contains a bunch of relevant info -
"including the affected path. See lib/nerdtree/event.vim for details.
endfunction
<
Current events supported:
init ~
refresh ~
refreshFlags ~
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NERDTreeRender() *NERDTreeRender()*
Re-renders the NERDTree buffer. Useful if you change the state of the
tree and you want to it to be reflected in the UI.
