Browse Local File System


#1

I am new to Atom and in my past editors I had the ability to browse the local file system. It appears the Tree View is project centric, but maybe that is just my misunderstanding. Is there a package or setting I am missing that will allow navigation of the entire local file system?


#2

No, the Tree View is designed to be project-centric.

Thanks for the prompt feedback. Are you aware of a package this enables this functionality? I have not been in Atom long enough to attempt creating one.


#4

No, I’m not aware of a package that enables this. That doesn’t mean it isn’t out there though.


#5

Take a look at atom-commander. If you’re used to dual-pane file managers then it should make you feel right at home.

That looks very promising…thanks for the tip. I will give it a try today.
