7106Re: TextMate-like project drawer for MacVim?
- Apr 2 6:26 AMI don't think that there's a great need to bloat the default tree of
vim. Textmate just sucks, not having anything like code-completion or
intelligent behavior, while editing. :-)
Next to this point a project drawer is integrated in vim-JDE, which
wasn't mentioned jet.
I use the NERDtree, because it's intelligent. Works wonderful with tabs:
just open a new file pressing t and read or edit.
The only thing I'm really missing - what Textmate offers - is a way to
compile LaTeX documents and automatically jumping to the pdf for
previewing. But the vim project offers more project viewers then emacs
:-). So... we rock.
