Navigate the Filesystem Quickly

September 29, 2015

When you need to navigate around your filesystem quickly, hit SPC a d to open a dired buffer in a given directory (you’ll be able to specify it.) Once you’re in, hit enter to open a file or directory, and dthe normal movement keys to navigate. You can hit ? to get a list of other keybindings for doing things like deleting, renaming, and copying files. A cool thing to note is that if you rename a file using dired, the associated buffers open in emacs will also be renamed.
