@sveri - I wonder about this too. the problem is that scratch buffers are not attached to a project in the sense of projectile.

@mahinshaw: Also the question here goes into this direction: http://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/19356/spacemacs-opening-and-creating-files#comment32002_19356 actually someone suggests to RTFM and someone else to close the question as to broad. I want SO from 5 years before back -.-

@sveri That question seems to point to using Dired

mahinshaw18:03:21

which would solve a majority of his issues

sveri18:03:20

Might be, but for newcomers all the plugins are a pain IME. Everyone has different keystrokes (obv.) there is hardy any consistency between them recognizable and learning how to use all the stuff is just to much for a normal brain. So a spacemacs included solution would be preferable IMO.

@sveri: Dired is not so hard to use. Certainly it has a fair number of keybindings, but you can use it just fine with j, k, RET, and ^.

Dired is a built in emacs mode, and it is super easy. It’s how I learned to navigate files in emacs. I think the problem lies with spacemacs being a large abstraction on emacs. This leads people to not knowing how emacs works, and what is available, and for that matter, how to deal with problems. That said, I love spacemacs
