Few years ago I used a lightweight IDE called “Sublime Text 2”. And one of the
most compelling features of it was an ability to switch between files by
P and typing in a part of the file name.
This is exactly what
ctrlp.vim implements in vim. Usage is extremely simple:
install the plugin, hit
P, type a part of the file name, select a
desired file and hit
Enter. You can use arrow keys or
K to navigate between suggested file list.
