This is a mirror of http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1865 This plugin provides a simple file browser. It is not a full blown explorer but can be nevertheless be useful for quickly selecting a few files or renaming them. As the plugin does some caching in the background, the filelist is only generated once for each path or when called with [!]. In conjuncture with the use of the [wbg]:tselectfile_filter_rx variable, this provides for use as a simple ad-hoc project manager. VIM-CENTRIC EXAMPLE: When I open a file under "~/vimfiles", I set b:tselectfiles_dir to all the relevant directories under "~/vimfiles" and then set b:tselectfile_filter_rx = expand('%:t:r'). Thus, when I open "~/vimfiles/plugin/foo.vim", b:tselectfile_filter_rx is "foo", and :TSelectFiles shows all the files under "~/vimfiles" matching "foo". Features: - list files (recursively or the in the current directory only), dynamically select files matching a pattern - open files - preview files - rename/move files - batch rename/move files (using a regular expression) - copy files - delete files - show file info Advanced uses: Related files: If you set |g:tselectfiles_filter_rx| to some appropriate value, only files matching that regexp will be shown initially. This can be used to restrict the list to "related" files. (The initial filter can be removed by pressing <c-bs>.) See also |tselectfiles#BaseFilter()| and |g:tselectfiles_part_subst|. Rolodex: If a filename matches an entry in |g:tselectfiles_filedescription_rx| (a dictionnary patter => funcref), funcref(filename) will be called to retrieve the file's description. This function could be used to extract metadata or selected lines from the file etc. By mapping one record onto one file, you would get some sort of rolodex-like database. See |tselectfiles#FormatVikiMetaDataOrFirstLine()| for an example for viki/deplate (vimscript #861) formatted files. Demo: http://vimsomnia.blogspot.com/2012/09/tselectfiles-demo.html
