Ⅳ. 文档说明

# vinegar.vim

Split windows and the project drawer go together like oil and vinegar. I
don't mean to say that you can combine them to create a delicious salad

  1. I mean that they don't mix well!
  • Drew Neil

You know what netrw is, right? The built in directory browser? Well,
vinegar.vim enhances netrw, partially in an attempt to mitigate the need for
more disruptive "project drawer" style plugins.

Some of the behaviors added by vinegar.vim would make excellent upstream

  1. Many, the author would probably reject. Others are a bit too wild
  2. even consider.
  • Press - in any buffer to hop up to the directory listing and seek to the
    file you just came from. Keep bouncing to go up, up, up. Having rapid

directory access available changes everything.

  • All that annoying crap at the top is turned off, leaving you with nothing
    but a list of files. This is surprisingly disorienting, but ultimately

very liberating. Press I to toggle until you adapt.

  • The oddly C-biased default sort order is replaced with a sensible application
    of 'suffixes'.
  • File hiding: files are not listed that match with one of the patterns in

If you put let g:netrw_list_hide = '\(^\|\s\s\)\zs\.\S\+'
in your vimrc, vinegar will initialize with dot files hidden.
Press gh to toggle dot file hiding.

  • Press . on a file to pre-populate it at the end of a : command line.
    This is great, for example, to quickly initiate a :grep of the file or

directory under the cursor. There's also !, which starts the line off
with a bang. Type !chmod +x and get :!chmod +x path/to/file.

  • Press y. to yank an absolute path for the file under the cursor.
  • Press ~ to go home.
  • Use Vim's built-in CTRL-^ (CTRL-6) for switching back to the previous
    buffer from the netrw buffer.
