In goormIDE, you can open source code files as well as Vim editor and ZIP / TAR files.
It also remembers recently opened files, so you can easily return to the one you were working on.

File(default editor)

To open a file, double-click or right-click on the file you want to open in the Project Browser on the left side of goormIDE. Then go to [Open] or [Open as] > [Default Editor]. Alternatively, go to [File] > [Open File] or press the default shortcut Ctrl + O (Mac: ⌘O). In the following 'Open File' pop-up window, select the file and press OK button to open. Depends on the file's extension, it will be opened in the default editor or in the document viewer. Some extensions may not be supported and may cannot be opened.
To check your recently opened files, go to [File] > [Open Recent Files]. You can see up to five recently opened files, Click each file's name to open the file. If there are files from other users who have been deleted or unshared may not be opened. if you don't want to see them anymore, click the [Clear] menu to clear your history.

Vim Editor

goormIDE provides Vim editor as well as general editor. When you open a file in Vim editor, the environment will be the same as running Vim in terminal.
To open the Vim Editor, right-click the file you want to open in the project explorer on the left side of goormIDE and go to [Open as] > [Vim Editor]. This opens an editor with the editing environment set to Vim, instead of terminal. You can use the same Vim shortcuts in this editor, and the usage is the same.

Compress or Decompress with ZIP / TAR

You can compress or decompress with ZIP / TAR in goormIDE.
Right click the file and click [Compress] or [Extract File]. Alternatively, go to [File] > [Compress] or [Extract File]. After decompressing, a folder with the same name as the compressed file will be created in the same location, with the contents of the compressed file underneath.
You can also decompress the file by double-clicking in the project explorer on the left side of goormIDE.
