    Neovim file explorer: edit your filesystem like a buffer

  • Maybe https://github.com/stevearc/oil.nvim? Nvim tree and neotree both have floating mode as well which I prefer more.

  • vim-vinegar

    vinegar.vim: Combine with netrw to create a delicious salad dressing

  • I think you might be looking for netrw (:Ex brings it up). It is the default file explorer and can be used in many cool ways. There are extensions for it, like (vim-vinegar, and :help netrw is your friend :)

  • vim-dirvish

    Directory viewer for Vim :zap:

  • vin-dirvish fits your requirements.

  • rnvimr

    Make Ranger running in a floating window to communicate with Neovim via RPC

  • https://github.com/kevinhwang91/rnvimr is pretty good, it opens ranger in a floating terminal and takes care of file renaming and deletion, etc.
