NOTE

This is a mirror of github.com/orftz/sbd.vim. That github account appears to have been deleted.

sbd.vim

Flattr this

Close buffers smartly.

Because Vim's vanilla buffer closing/deletion becomes painful as soon as you start working with multiple buffers and windows.

sbd allows you to close buffers while leaving your window layout intact. As a bonus, deleting a special buffer (e.g. quickfix, help, directory, scratch, etc) will automatically close the window holding it. Making these special buffers easier to deal with.

Installation

If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen, and run:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/orftz/sbd.vim.git

Then, add the following to your vimrc, as-is or tweaked to your taste:

nnoremap <silent> <leader>bd    :Sbd<CR>
nnoremap <silent> <leader>bdm   :Sbdm<CR>

:Sbd closes the buffer normally, while :Sbdm closes the buffer disregarding if it has unsaved changes or not.

Once help tags have been generated, you can view the manual with :help sbd.vim.

Enjoy.
