Favorite Files

Postby phirschybar on Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:02 pm

Is there any way to access favorite files across my file system? They aren't part of any particular project. Just system files I regularly update.

If you drag the parent folder into the sidebar, you can then easily find filenames by using Goto Anything.

@nick They are not recent file perse.

@skube there is no parent folder. they are misc files spread across my file system.

so, it is looking like there is no "favorites" type of feature built in, eh. I guess I could fashion something.

If you're not on Windows, you could create a folder full of symlinks. Probably not what you want though. :)

Seems like it should be a possible, and I've been meaning to write a plugin. I'll see what I can do.

I think it would be nice to use ctrl+n/ctrl+p(or cmd for mac) to go up and down in popup list like vim,but currently this two key bind was occupied by default.

I threw together a plugin after seeing this thread to allow the saving and access of favorite files.
