I'm upgrading Emacs and moving from macOS to Windows after quite a few years getting by with a very old setup (eg, custom scripts for Anything). I've installed Helm. I'm interested in a simple way to:
- Specify a "project" directory without writing anything to disk or requiring any sort of project file to be in place already (unlike Projectile, as far as I can tell)
- See a list of fuzzy-matched candidates for files to jump to within that project, at any level
- Jump from the list to a selected file
In other words, I would like to recreate the experience of loading up an arbitrary directory in Atom and jumping to any file within that directory. Helm seems like a natural candidate for this, but does not seem to come with the desired functionality.
