Treemacs - Visualise your project structureλ︎

You can easily view your project structure and navigate your project files with Treemacs.

Show files and directories as a navigable tree in a buffer. Spacemacs uses a pop-up buffer to the left hand side of the frame to display treemacs.

Toggling open the treemacs buffer will show the directory of the current buffer.

Opening the treemacs project root will show the directory list for the project that the current buffer is part of.

Vim Normal Emacs Command Description
SPC f t M-m f t treemacs-toggle Show / hide treemacs buffer
SPC p t M-m p t treemacs-find-project-root Show project root in treemacs
SPC 0 M-m 0 select-window-0 Switch to open treemacs buffer


Treemacs shows version control changesλ︎

New and changed files are highlighted in Treemacs against the current version controlled changes in the project.

Directory names turn blue when they contain changes. Filenames turn green when they are changed.
