I’ve recently made a major update to my kakoune-filetree plugin which changed pretty much everything, and only keeps the general idea.
Previously the plugin would just be a flat list of full paths, which worked OK but was not very visual or easy to navigate.
I realized I could instead use the ‘tree’ program to create the listing, and simply implement the interactivity and kakoune integration on top of it.
I’m pretty happy with the result, check it out if it seems interesting to you. I’ve also spent some time on making an asciinema demo kakoune-filetree - asciinema
Super excited about this! I’ve been a long time tree user, but have yet to make the jump to an integrated file tree in kakoune. I’ll give this a spin!
