If you're talking about a directory tree list of all the files, I
think It'll be much like an IDE. There's no need to display it as
such. We can just have a list of files. As pointed out, being simple
is one of Plasmate's primary goals.
IMO lets have the sidebar smaller and maybe positioned just below the
menu by default.
