Manage files and directories in vim

Inspired by vidir by Joey Hess (https://joeyh.name/code/moreutils/)

## Usage

To list files and folders
:Vimdir [directory]

To list files and folders recursive
:VimdirR [directory]

If no directory is specified Vimdir will use the current path

Changes will be applyed when you save the vimdir buffer. If you want to cancel
just close the buffer without saving.

## Colors

vimdir.vim doesn't come with highlighting support but using the https://github.com/trapd00r/vim-syntax-vidir-ls plugin works perfectly.

## Configuration

To show hidden files and folders set this in your vimrc

let g:vimdir_show_hidden = 1

To force removal of files and folders set this in your vimrc
(will add this to the overwrite code when its implemented)
let g:vimdir_force = 1

## bin/vimdir

You can use the bin/vimdir script to execute vimdir directly from the terminal.
Just place it in your path and run vimdir.
