A very simple yet useful plugin. Opener.nvim lets you open directories / folders in neovim like in mainstream editors (vscode, atom, ...). Essentially, it changes the cwd (current working directory, like :cd) and clears all buffers, tabs and windows (of course respecting any unsaved buffers). This was you can use the same editor instance for different workspaces / projects / directories without reopening neovim. This is especially useful for people using a neovim GUI such as neovide, where it is time consuming to reopen the editor. Also, it may be useful for people using project-management plugins or session -management plugins, to open projects, which has not been open before.
Bonus: naturally opener.nvim has a built-in telescope.nvim extension for choosing directories.
Bonus 2: you can setup hooks to run before and after opening a directory.

Hey Willian, that's cool! Congrats! Maybe I'm not installing it right now, but I probably is gonna have a look at your source code to know how the thing works.
By the way, what that cursor moving animation effect that you have in the gif? That's pretty cool too, can you tell us the name of the plugin (if it is a plugin)
I use a neovim-gui called neovide github.com/neovide/neovide :)
