One of Emacs power features that I've never quite gotten into is dired, the Directory Editor. I've already done a video on the package. It's really cool and I do use it at times but I still haven't started using it for my day to day.
Well, I just started using a couple of packages that might change
this. They're part of a set of dired addons that you can check out at the
dired hacks page. The specific ones I'm talkign about are
dired-subtree is cool but it's
not the game changer.
dired-narrow is. One of my issues with
dired is that I can't see all the files I'm operating on easily at the
same time. If I'm marking a large number of files to delete I want to
be able to see all of them at once so I'm sure I'm not making a
dired-narrow lets me easily do this.
