QuickBuf is a Vim plugin that helps you to navigate and manipulate buffers.
Version: 1.11QuickBuf is a Vim plugin that helps you to navigate and manipulate buffers. It is a buffer manager for Vim.
Operating System: Linux
While making the task of browsing and manipulating buffers visual and simple, QuickBuf also offers advanced abilities of dealing with buffers (ex: "unlisted" mode). It's unique among several other buffer managers for creating no dedicated buffer and defining no auto command, thus minimize its interference.
- Press the assigned hotkey to activate QuickBuf (default < F4 >). It brings out a list of buffers that you can browse and give commands on!
Some indicators in the list:
- * : the buffer being opened in the active window
- = : a buffer being opened in a window, but not active
- [+] : modifed buffer
- Press a key to give a command to the currently selected buffer
- d : delete buffer
- w : wipe out buffer
- s : open buffer in a new horizontally split window
- u : open buffer
- < enter > : open buffer and leave QuickBuf; if the buffer is already opened in a window, switch to that window.
- Instead of moving the selection bar around to select a buffer, you can use a number to specify a buffer. For example: '2d' will delete the second buffer in the list. Try '3< enter >', '1w', '1!w'
- Use 'l' key to toggle between LISTED and UNLISTED mode. Which mode QuickBuf enter first depends on the active buffer. While in UNLISTED mode, 'unlisted' buffers (the buffers you have deleted) are showed. Also:
- [+] indicates a loaded buffer
- 'd' command makes the selected buffer 'listed' again
Source it with ':so qbuf.vim' or simply put it in /plugin under Vim's folder.
To define hotkey for QuickBuf:
Define g:qb_hotkey before source qbuf.vim, ex:
let g:qb_hotkey = ""
Or put that line in your _vimrc profile. Default, key "" is used.
Whenever you change g:qb_hotkey, :so qbuf.vim again to update hotkey.
What's New in This Release:
· Automatically select the active buffer
· Fix the display problem related to Vim's option "lazyredraw"
