Is there a Finder plugin (maybe SIMBL plugin) which allows one to see the directory structure in the Finder's sidebar (instead of Favorites, Shared, Devices) or in an attached window?

Something like this:

Finder somehow with sidebar

There is Cover Flow, but it's not what I need.

Also I don't need any Finder replacement; I just want to fix this missing feature in Finder.

    I think you're going to end up with a Finder replacement :) – jtbandes Apr 2 '12 at 8:35

    Consider hiding finder sidebar and using column or list view until you get it sorted. – Richard Apr 2 '12 at 12:33
  • "missing" is relative, it's just not there. Otherwise check out cocoatech.com/pathfinder. – nohillside Sep 17 '12 at 14:48

I doubt there's a SIMBL plugin to do that. What you're asking for would be a fairly extensive rewrite even if you had the source code for the Finder.

Your best bets are what @jtbandes and @Richard's comments on your question state: get a Finder replacement that does that or use list view in the Finder.
