Table of ContentsClose

1. Description

This layer integrates the fasd command line tool into Spacemacs.

1.1. Features:

  • Adds easy shortcuts to reference recent files and directories.
  • Provides fasd with recent open file lists from Emacs.
  • Allows to filter fasd results with helm or ivy.

2. Install

2.1. Layer

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

2.2. fasd

fasd must be installed on your system. The general installation instructions can be found in the repository README

On macOS, it can be installed via homebrew:

$ brew install fasd

3. Comment

The fasd package has been updated to support Ivy actions (M-o). This layer adds an Ivy action to start a deep search in a directory (spacemacs/search-auto) from the fasd results. After the fasd query, instead of enter, type M-o on some directory then press s to start a deep search in that directory.
