Working with Projects
You can navigate the directories of your project using find files, as we have seen with opening a file. This works well when adding individual files as you work on them. You can then switch between these files using buffer commands,
File, Buffer and Project menus
Spacemacs gives you several options for managing the files in your project and you will use commands from the following menus
When starting a new project, you can use the File menu to open a file from the project, eg.
project.clj. Once one file is open from a project you can use the Project menu to open a file,
SPC p f or switch to the buffer of other file,
SPC p b.
When you want to switch to an already open file outside the project you can use the Buffer menu,
SPC b b.
If you want to open a file outside of the current project, then use the File menu to find the file,
SPC f f.
When creating a new file, use the File Find command,
SPC f f and enter the full path and name of the new file. You are prompted to confirm that you want a new file created.
