vimcommander

This is an adaptation of opsplorer (vimscript #362), intended to be more like the Total Commander file explorer.

Installation

  • Drop vimcommander.vim in ~/.vim/plugin
  • Put in you .vimrc a map to VimCommanderToggle() like this:
    noremap <silent> <F11> :cal VimCommanderToggle()<CR>

Usage

vimcommander opens two panels of file explorers on the top half of the vim screen.
Targets for moving and copying defaults to the other panel, like totalcmd.
TAB switches between panels.

Vimcommander keys are mostly totalcommander's:

  • F3 - view
  • F4 - edit
  • F5 - copy
  • F6 - move
  • F7 - create dir
  • F8 - del
  • Others: C-U, C-Left/C-Right, C-R, BS, DEL, C-H, etc.
  • Selection of files/dirs also works: INS, +, -. Then copy/move/del selected files.

Suggested binding is
noremap <silent> <F11> :cal VimCommanderToggle()<CR>

Tested on Linux. I have reports that it doesn't work on Windows.
