I use need tree to move and rename files. Running commands you can do :! and then a command to run straight from vim. Like ":! echo cool".
Also :term will open a terminal as a buffer if you have a vim 8 or neovim.
People love NerdTree! I'm trying to avoid it as I want to be proficient without having to install any plugins for VIM.
:! <cmd> and :term are excellent ideas, thank you!
