Doesn't work with emacs 26, and really wasn't terribly well written anyway. I wouldn't suggest using it anymore, although I hope to rewrite it someday.
- Every buffer has exactly one cat, which is inherited from the previous buffer (the one it was created in)
- Every frame has a unique initial cat
- This is really the useful part (for me, anyway), as it allows me to delete old groups of buffers from other projects that were open in separate buffers
- Good ibuffer support
- Probably not terribly well written!
- Cats! (Does not include any actual cats)
Future Features (If I, or someone else, ever gets around to them)
- Being less poorly written
- Setting cats by projectile projects
- A function to run functions (such as switch-buffer) with only the buffers in a cat
Differences From Persp-mode/Perspective
- Cats are stored buffer-local, which has some advantages and disadvantages
- Every buffer has exactly one cat
- Cats are persistent across frames
- Doesn't do window saving/restoring
To install, just load the file. If using quelpa, use this recipe:
cat-mode :fetcher github :repo "ad1217/emacs-cat-mode".
(cat-mode 1). Use
M-x customize-group RET cat-mode RET to customize. Ibuffer usage is highly recommended. Turning on
ibuffer-auto-mode is also recommended.
cat-set: Sets the current buffer's cat
cat-set-ibuffer: Like cat-set, but operates on all marked buffers in ibuffer
kill-cat: Kills all buffers in cat
