The Buffalo

Note
The buffalo requires Vim 7.3 with patch 338 to perform its magic.
Note
The buffalo depends on https://github.com/dahu/vimple

The buffalo is a minimalist buffer switcher for Vim. Based on the principle that flying is faster than cycling, we believe that you should not be using :bprev and :bnext (even bound to handy keys) because that is slower than using the builtin Vim buffer list (:ls) and buffer switcher (:b). The builtin :b command can switch to a buffer by number or by partial buffer name match. It even supports fuzzy matching.

The buffalo uses Vim’s ctrl-d command to show partial matches as well as the :b command to automatically switch when a single unique buffer name matches the typed partial - without the user needing to press <Enter>.

If you know your buffer number, you can still switch by buffer number using the buffalo.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
