Initially, I wrote this Vim plugin to emulate TextMate’s cmd-t functionality.
Here’s what you get:
- type ESC-t
- you get a new buffer filled with the “find” command
- search for the file you want with /
- press ENTER, it opens the file under the cursor
I consider this an 80/20 solution … it does most of what I need and it’s under 50 lines of code.
The plugin is also featured in this screencast.
