My custom extras for Dired (Emacs)
In this video I demonstrate the custom extensions that I have written
from Emacs’ file manager program:
dired. Dired is very powerful
out-of-the-box and those extras build on what is already available. In
short: (i) a general purpose command to insert the contents of
subdirectories in the current buffer, (ii) a more convenient tool to
limit the buffer to items that match (or not) a given regular
expression, (iii) commands to navigate subdirectory headings including
imenu index, (iv) other utilities to determine the external program
for a certain file type.
I document everything at length in my dotemacs and also share the exact configurations I use daily: https://protesilaos.com/emacs/dotemacs.
Everything is part of my dotfiles’ repository (and the source code contains informative documentation strings): https://gitlab.com/protesilaos/dotfiles.
