How to use it
It just works.
`ranger <http://ranger.nongnu.org/>`_ is a file manager with VI key bindings.
This plugin is similar to `nerdtree <https://github.com/scrooloose/nerdtree>`_.
It overrides the default file browser (netrw), so if you :edit a directory a ranger will be opened.
When you open a file in ranger, it will be opened in vim.
You could also select multiple files and open'em all at once (use ``v`` to select multiple files in ranger).
BTW, don't use it with nerdtree at the same time.
You can add ``nnoremap <f3> :tabe %:p:h<cr>`` to your .vimrc so that you could use ``<f3>`` to open new files in new tab.
1. (Only for vanilla vim) After opening ranger once and back to vim, you can't use arrow-up/arrow-down to observe vim command line ":" history doesn't work anymore (unless restart vim).
Workaground: use Ctrl+UP/DOWN to observe history, instead of just UP/DOWN.
2. (Only for neovim) some shortcut don't work, such as "F8", "<c-h>" because of neovim limitation.
ranger >= 1.5.1
This plugin is forked from the official ranger example here:
There are 3 main differences
1. Unlike the original plugin, in my plugin the files are opened in tabs instead of buffers.
2. Ranger will be opened automatically when you :edit a directory. The original plugin requires to execute a vim command to open ranger.
3. My plugin supports neovim.
