What I actually want
I have deep folder structures, and often use a dozen folders pretty far down the directory tree. In Nautilus, I use bookmarks to get to them quickly. I want the same thing in Emacs, as I plan to use Dired more.
My plan is to have a folder of symlinks to all my bookmarks somewhere on my file system, and a function in Emacs which launches dired with that folder and then invokes
What does that function look like?
Of course, if there is a better way to achieve this, I'd be happy to learn about it. I read about dired bookmarks and they don't seem to do what I want (if I understand what they do, which is not necessarily the case) as I can't have changes in my
~/.emacs.d folder during normal use and those bookmarks would change every time I mark something.
