A File Explorer For Neovim Written In Lua

Linting and style checking

Notice

This plugin requires neovim >=0.5.0.

If you have issues since the recent setup migration, check out this guide

Install

Install with vim-plug:

" requires
Plug 'kyazdani42/nvim-web-devicons' " for file icons
Plug 'kyazdani42/nvim-tree.lua'

Install with packer:

use {
    'kyazdani42/nvim-tree.lua',
    requires = 'kyazdani42/nvim-web-devicons',
    config = function() require'nvim-tree'.setup {} end
}

Setup

Options are currently being migrated into the setup function, you need to run require'nvim-tree'.setup() in your personal configurations. Setup should be run in a lua file or in a lua heredoc (:help lua-heredoc) if using in a vim file. Note that options under the g: command should be set BEFORE running the setup function.

-- following options are the default
-- each of these are documented in `:help nvim-tree.OPTION_NAME`
require'nvim-tree'.setup {
  disable_netrw       = true,
  hijack_netrw        = true,
  open_on_setup       = false,
  ignore_ft_on_setup  = {},
  auto_close          = false,
  open_on_tab         = false,
  hijack_cursor       = false,
  update_cwd          = false,
  update_to_buf_dir   = {
    enable = true,
    auto_open = true,
  },
  diagnostics = {
    enable = false,
    icons = {
      hint = "",
      info = "",
      warning = "",
      error = "",
    }
  },
  update_focused_file = {
    enable      = false,
    update_cwd  = false,
    ignore_list = {}
  },
  system_open = {
    cmd  = nil,
    args = {}
  },
  filters = {
    dotfiles = false,
    custom = {}
  },
  view = {
    width = 30,
    height = 30,
    hide_root_folder = false,
    side = 'left',
    auto_resize = false,
    mappings = {
      custom_only = false,
      list = {}
    }
  }
}

These additional options must be set BEFORE calling require'nvim-tree' or calling setup. They are being migrated to the setup function bit by bit, check this issue if you encounter any problems related to configs not working after update.

KeyBindings

Default actions

  • <CR> or o on .. will cd in the above directory
  • <C-]> will cd in the directory under the cursor
  • <BS> will close current opened directory or parent
  • type a to add a file. Adding a directory requires leaving a leading / at the end of the path.

    you can add multiple directories by doing foo/bar/baz/f and it will add foo bar and baz directories and f as a file

  • type r to rename a file
  • type <C-r> to rename a file and omit the filename on input
  • type x to add/remove file/directory to cut clipboard
  • type c to add/remove file/directory to copy clipboard
  • type y will copy name to system clipboard
  • type Y will copy relative path to system clipboard
  • type gy will copy absolute path to system clipboard
  • type p to paste from clipboard. Cut clipboard has precedence over copy (will prompt for confirmation)
  • type d to delete a file (will prompt for confirmation)
  • type ]c to go to next git item
  • type [c to go to prev git item
  • type - to navigate up to the parent directory of the current file/directory
  • type s to open a file with default system application or a folder with default file manager (if you want to change the command used to do it see :h nvim-tree.setup under system_open)
  • if the file is a directory, <CR> will open the directory otherwise it will open the file in the buffer near the tree
  • if the file is a symlink, <CR> will follow the symlink (if the target is a file)
  • <C-v> will open the file in a vertical split
  • <C-x> will open the file in a horizontal split
  • <C-t> will open the file in a new tab
  • <Tab> will open the file as a preview (keeps the cursor in the tree)
  • I will toggle visibility of hidden folders / files
  • H will toggle visibility of dotfiles (files/folders starting with a .)
  • R will refresh the tree
  • Double left click acts like <CR>
  • Double right click acts like <C-]>

Settings

The list option in view.mappings.list is a table of

-- key can be either a string or a table of string (lhs)
-- cb is the callback that will be called
-- mode is normal by default
local list = {
  { key = {"<CR>", "o" }, cb = ":lua some_func()<cr>", mode = "n"}
}

These are the default bindings:

local tree_cb = require'nvim-tree.config'.nvim_tree_callback
-- default mappings
local list = {
  { key = {"<CR>", "o", "<2-LeftMouse>"}, cb = tree_cb("edit") },
  { key = {"<2-RightMouse>", "<C-]>"},    cb = tree_cb("cd") },
  { key = "<C-v>",                        cb = tree_cb("vsplit") },

  { key = "x",                            cb = tree_cb("cut") },
  { key = "c",                            cb = tree_cb("copy") },
  { key = "p",                            cb = tree_cb("paste") },

  { key = "Y",                            cb = tree_cb("copy_path") },
  { key = "gy",                           cb = tree_cb("copy_absolute_path") },
  { key = "[c",                           cb = tree_cb("prev_git_item") },
  { key = "]c",                           cb = tree_cb("next_git_item") },
  { key = "-",                            cb = tree_cb("dir_up") },
  { key = "s",                            cb = tree_cb("system_open") },
  { key = "q",                            cb = tree_cb("close") },
  { key = "g?",                           cb = tree_cb("toggle_help") },
}

You can toggle the help UI by pressing g?.

Tips & reminders

  1. you can add a directory by adding a / at the end of the paths, entering multiple directories BASE/foo/bar/baz will add directory foo, then bar and add a file baz to it.
