Dired-Phundrak layer



This layer adds my custom configuration of Dired on top of the default dired configuration for Spacemacs.


Sane functions for Dired from Ergomacs website, and one of my own, mapped to sane keybindings in dired-mode:

  • Open several files at once from Dired in Emacs
  • Open several files at once from Dired in external software (useful when using EXWM)
  • Sort files in Dired by name, date, size or extension
  • Rename files, replacing whitespace in the filename by:

    • underscores _
    • or hyphens -


To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add dired-phundrak to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.
