1. Install *MiniBufExplInstall*
Normally, this file should reside in the plugins directory and be
automatically sourced. If not, you must manually source this file using
':source minibufexplorer.vim'.
==============================================================================
2. Key Mappings *MiniBufExplMappings*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.1 Global Mappings *MiniBufExplMappings-Global*
MBE has no longer provide default key bindings for controling MBE window.
You may want to add something like the following to your .vimrc file:
map <Leader>mbe :MBEOpen<cr>
map <Leader>mbc :MBEClose<cr>
map <Leader>mbt :MBEToggle<cr>
Or, much shorter form:
map <Leader>e :MBEOpen<cr>
map <Leader>c :MBEClose<cr>
map <Leader>t :MBEToggle<cr>
Either way, the key bindings used in these mappings should fit with your
configuration of Vim.

==============================================================================
4. Options *MiniBufExplOptions*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.1 Splits *MiniBufExplSplits*
*'g:miniBufExplVSplit'*
If you would like a vertical explorer you can assign the column width (in
characters) you want for your explorer window with the following .vimrc
variable (this was introduced in 6.3.0):
let g:miniBufExplVSplit = 20 " column width in chars
*'g:miniBufExplBRSplit'*
To control where the new split window goes relative to the current window, use
the setting:
let g:miniBufExplBRSplit = 0 " Put new window above
" current or on the
" left for vertical split
let g:miniBufExplBRSplit = 1 " Put new window below
" current or on the
" right for vertical split
The default for this is read from the 'splitbelow' or 'splitright' Vim option
which depends on 'g:miniBufExplVSplit' option.
*'g:miniBufExplSplitBelow'*
This option has been depreciated by 'g:miniBufExplBRSplit'.
*'g:miniBufExplSplitToEdge'*
By default we are now (as of 6.0.2) forcing the -MiniBufExplorer- window to
open up at the edge of the screen. You can turn this off by setting the
following variable in your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplSplitToEdge = 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.2 Window Size *MiniBufExplWindowSize*
*'g:miniBufExplMaxSize'*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Horizontal
It is now (as of 6.1.1) possible to set a maximum height
for the -MiniBufExplorer- window. You can set the max height by letting the
following variable in your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplMaxSize = <max lines: default 0>
setting this to 0 will mean the window gets as big as needed to fit all your
buffers.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vertical
(as of 6.3.0)
By default the vertical explorer has a fixed width . If you put:
let g:miniBufExplMaxSize = <max width: default 0>
into your .vimrc then MBE will attempt to set the width of the MBE window to
be as wide as your widest tab. The width will not exceed MaxSize even if you
have wider tabs.
Accepting the default value of 0 for this will give you a fixed width MBE
window.
NOTE: This was *'g:miniBufExplMaxHeight'* before 6.3.0; the old
setting is backwards compatible if you don't use MaxSize.
*'g:miniBufExplMinSize'*
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Horizontal
As of 6.2.2 it is possible to set a minimum height for the -MiniBufExplorer-
window. You can set the min height by letting the following variable in your
.vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplMinSize = <min height: default 1>
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vertical
You can specify a MinSize for the vertical explorer window by putting the
following in your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplMinSize = <min width: default 1>
This will have no effect unless you also specify MaxSize.
NOTE: This was *'g:miniBufExplMinHeight'* before 6.3.0; the old
setting is backwards compatible if you don't use MinSize.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.3 Automatic Opening *MiniBufExplAutoOpen*
*'g:miniBufExplAutoStart'*
If you only want open MBE manually when needed, you can put the following into
your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplorerAutoStart = 0
*'g:miniBufExplorerAutoStart'*
This option has been depreciated by 'g:miniBufExplAutoStart'.
*'g:miniBufExplBuffersNeeded'*
This variable controls how man buffers should be available until MBE shows up,
if 'g:miniBufExplorerAutoStart' is enabled. By default, at least 2 buffers are
needed.
You can put the following into your .vimrc to let MBE start as soon as a normal
buffer is available.
let g:miniBufExplBuffersNeeded = 1
You can put the following into your .vimrc to skip the eligible buffer checking.
let g:miniBufExplBuffersNeeded = 0
*'g:miniBufExplorerMoreThanOne'*
This option has been depreciated by 'g:miniBufExplBuffersNeeded'.
*'g:miniBufExplHideWhenDiff'*
Disable automatic opening if vim is started in diff mode(vimdiff, or with '-d'
option). This option only affected the first tab page created at vim start.
*'g:miniBufExplorerHideWhenDiff'*
This option has been depreciated by 'g:miniBufExplHideWhenDiff'.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.4 Keyboard Control *MiniBufExplKeyboard*
*'g:miniBufExplMapWindowNavVim'*
*'g:miniBufExplMapWindowNavArrows'*
*'g:miniBufExplMapCTabSwitchBufs'*
*'g:miniBufExplMapCTabSwitchWindows'*
These configuration variabes have been obsolete, MBE does no longer provide
this functionality any more. If you'd like them be back, please add the
following mappings to your .vimrc file.
" If you like control + vim direction key to navigate
" windows then perform the remapping
"
noremap <C-J> <C-W>j
noremap <C-K> <C-W>k
noremap <C-H> <C-W>h
noremap <C-L> <C-W>l
" If you like control + arrow key to navigate windows
" then perform the remapping
"
noremap <C-Down> <C-W>j
noremap <C-Up> <C-W>k
noremap <C-Left> <C-W>h
noremap <C-Right> <C-W>l
" If you like <C-TAB> and <C-S-TAB> to switch buffers
" in the current window then perform the remapping
"
noremap <C-TAB> :MBEbn<CR>
noremap <C-S-TAB> :MBEbp<CR>
"
" Or, in MRU fashion
"
noremap <C-TAB> :MBEbf<CR>
noremap <C-S-TAB> :MBEbb<CR>
"
" If you like <C-TAB> and <C-S-TAB> to switch windows
" then perform the remapping
"
noremap <C-TAB> <C-W>w
noremap <C-S-TAB> <C-W>W
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.5 Misc *MiniBufExplMisc*
*'g:miniBufExplSetUT'*
Set the 'updatetime' to a proper value.
*'g:miniBufExplCycleArround'*
Should buffer be cycled arround if hits the begining or the end while
using MBE's buffer movement commands.
*'g:miniBufExplStatusLineText'*
MBE window status line text.
*'g:miniBufExplUseSingleClick'*
As of MBE 6.3.0, you can put the following into your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplUseSingleClick = 1
If you would like to single click on tabs rather than double clicking on them
to goto the selected buffer.
*'g:miniBufExplCloseOnSelect'*
If you would like MBE to close when you select a buffer, put:
let g:miniBufExplCloseOnSelect = 1
into your .vimrc in order to force MBE to try to place selected buffers into a
window that does not have a nonmodifiable buffer. The upshot of this should be
that if you go into MBE and select a buffer, the buffer should not show up in
a window that is hosting an explorer.
*'g:miniBufExplShowBufNumbers'*
If you would like to omit the buffer number from MBE's buffer display, put the
following in your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplShowBufNumbers = 0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.6 Debugging *MiniBufExplDebugging*
*'g:miniBufExplDebugMode'*
You can also set a DebugMode to cause output to be target as follows (default
is mode 3):
let g:miniBufExplDebugMode = 0 " Errors will show up in
" a Vim window
let g:miniBufExplDebugMode = 1 " Uses Vim's echo function
" to display on the screen
let g:miniBufExplDebugMode = 2 " Writes to a file
" MiniBufExplorer.DBG
let g:miniBufExplDebugMode = 3 " Store output in global variable
" g:miniBufExplDebugOutput
*'g:miniBufExplorerDebugMode'*
This option has been depreciated by 'g:miniBufExplDebugMode'.
*'g:miniBufExplDebugLevel'*
MBE has had a basic debugging capability for quite some time. However, it has
not been very friendly in the past. As of 6.0.8, you can put one of each of
the following into your .vimrc:
let g:miniBufExplDebugLevel = 0 " MBE serious errors output
let g:miniBufExplDebugLevel = 4 " MBE all errors output
let g:miniBufExplDebugLevel = 10 " MBE reports everything
*'g:miniBufExplorerDebugLevel'*
This option has been depreciated by 'g:miniBufExplDebugLevel'.
Or if you are able to start Vim, you might just perform these at a command
prompt right before you do the operation that is failing.
==============================================================================
5. Highlighting *MiniBufExplHighlighting*
It is possible to customize the highlighting for the tabs in the MBE by
configuring the following highlighting groups:
MBENormal - for buffers that have NOT CHANGED and are
NOT VISIBLE
MBEChanged - for buffers that have CHANGED and are
NOT VISIBLE
MBEVisibleNormal - for buffers that have NOT CHANGED and are
VISIBLE
MBEVisibleChanged - for buffers that have CHANGED and are
VISIBLE
MBEVisibleActiveNormal - for buffers that have NOT CHANGED and are
VISIBLE and is the active buffer
MBEVisibleActiveChanged - for buffers that have CHANGED and are
VISIBLE and is the active buffer
You can either link to an existing highlighting group by adding a command
like:
hi link MBEVisibleChanged Error
to your .vimrc or you can specify exact foreground and background colors using
the following syntax:
hi MBEChanged guibg=darkblue ctermbg=darkblue termbg=white
If you have customized the above highlight groups, remember to set
'g:did_minibufexplorer_syntax_inits = 1' so that MBE would not override
your settings.
NOTE: If you set a colorscheme in your .vimrc you should do it
BEFORE updating the MBE highlighting groups.
==============================================================================
6. Known Issues *MiniBufExplKnownIssues*
==============================================================================
6. Todo *MiniBufExplTodo*
- Add the ability to specify a regexp for eligible buffers
allowing the ability to filter out certain buffers that
you don't want to control from MBE.

6.4.4
- Set up proper documentation. Thanks to Claytron :)
- Fix colorcolumn feature detection. Thanks to sandaya :)
- MBE now ignores buffers with empty name. Thanks to Folke
for the pull :)
- Fix incompatibility with tildes in filenames. Thanks to
future for the pull :)
6.4.3
- Fix MBE losing highlighting when a buffer is closed.
Thanks to Markus Koller for the pull request!
- Disable spellcheck on MBE buffer.
- Don't use colorcolumn setting on MBE buffer. Thanks to
grassofhust for the pull requests for this and the
previous issue!
6.4.2
- Moving current build out of beta. Getting ready for a
re-write!
6.4.1b5
- Allow users to turn off Buffer number display on explorer
tabs courtesy of jmatraszek.
- Allow users to turn off duplicate buffer name checking
to speed up MBE buffer switching. We are working on
optimizing this feature so that it is usable even with
many buffers open.
- Set Shellslash fix for Windows users so that duplicate
buffer name checking works properly.
- Re-enable syntax highlighting after cycling the buffer
courtesy of Sontek.
- Fix erratic :q behavior when MBE is the last buffer
courtesy of Moopet.
6.4.1b4
- Finally figured out how to turn off parentheses
matching for the MBE buffer, which solves a couple of
annoying graphical glitches. Thanks to Thomas Egreger
for the patch!
- Added a temporary fix for the issues with MBE and
FuzzyFinder thanks to toupeira.
6.4.1b2
- Fixed Dupe File Name checking function to prevent some
errors and actually work properly!
6.4.1b1
- Added handler function to only update MBE on changes.
6.4.0
- Added Emacs-like 'uniquify' feature where MBE will
show a parent directory when there are 2 buffers with
the same filename. Example: There are 2 buffers, one
is /ProjectA/Application/CSS/style.css and
/ProjectB/Applications/CSS/style.css. Originally, MBE
would just display 'style.css' for both buffers. Now,
MBE crawls up the directory tree to find the first
differentiating parent directory for both buffers, so
MBE will show 'ProjectA/style.css' and
'ProjectB/style.css' for each buffer name.
- Now setting winfixheight and winfixwidth for the MBE
buffer so that it does not get resized automatically
by window resizing commands such as 'CTRL W='.
6.3.7
- MBE now uses it's own status line format to reduce the
amount of visual clutter. This can be customized.
6.3.6
- MBE now updates current buffer's status on buffer save
and when a buffer is modified. Patched by Federico
Holgado (fholgado at gmail dot com).
6.3.5
- Added highlighting for currently active buffer.
Patched by Federico Holgado (fholgado at gmail dot
com).
6.3.4
- Now returns to augroup NONE after setting augroup
commands. Big thanks to Maciej Laszcz for the bug
report!
6.3.3
- Added additional keybindings. In addition to <TAB> and
<S-TAB>, l and h can now be used. In addition to <CR>,
and e can now be used.
- You can open the selected buffer in a new split window
by pressing s while in the minibufexplorer window.
- You can open the selected buffer in a new vertically
split window while pressing v while in the
minibufexplorer window. Patched by Oliver Uvman.
6.3.2
- For some reason there was still a call to StopExplorer
with 2 params. Very old bug. I know I fixed before,
any way many thanks to Jason Mills for reporting this!
6.3.1
- Include folds in source so that it's easier to
navigate.
- Added g:miniBufExplForceSyntaxEnable setting for folks
that want a :syntax enable to be called when we enter
buffers. This can resolve issues caused by a Vim bug
where buffers show up without highlighting when another
buffer has been closed, quit, wiped or deleted.
6.3.0
- Added an option to allow single click (rather than
the default double click) to select buffers in the
MBE window. This feature was requested by AW Law
and was inspired by taglist.vim. Note that you will
need the latest version of taglist.vim if you want to
use MBE and taglist both with singleclick turned on.
Also thanks to AW Law for pointing out that you can
make an Explorer not be listed in a standard :ls.
- Added the ability to have your tabs show up in a
vertical window rather than the standard horizontal
one. Just let g:miniBufExplVSplit = <width> in your
.vimrc and your will get this functionality.
- If you use the vertical explorer and you want it to
autosize then let g:miniBufExplMaxSize = <max width>
in your .vimrc. You may use the MinSize letting in
addition to the MaxLetting if you don't want a super
thin window.
- g:miniBufExplMaxHeight was renamed g:miniBufExplMaxSize
g:miniBufExplMinHeight was renamed g:miniBufExplMinSize
the old settings are backwards compatible if you don't
use the new settings, but they are depreciated.
6.2.8
- Add an option to stop MBE from targeting non-modifiable
buffers when switching buffers. Thanks to AW Law for
the inspiration for this. This may not work if a user
has lots of explorer/help windows open.
6.2.7
- Very minor bug fix for people who want to set
loaded_minibufexplorer in their .vimrc in order to
stop MBE from loading. 99.99% of users do not need
this update.
6.2.6
- Moved history to end of source file
- Updated highlighting documentation
- Created global commands MBEbn and MBEbp that can be
used in mappings if folks want to cycle buffers while
skipping non-eligible buffers.
6.2.5
- Added <Leader>mbt key mapping which will toggle
the MBE window. I map this to F3 in my .vimrc
with "map <F3> :TMiniBufExplorer<CR>" which
means I can easily close the MBE window when I'm
not using it and get it back when I want it.
- Changed default debug mode to 3 (write to global
g:miniBufExplDebugOutput)
- Made a pass through the documentation to clarify
serveral issues and provide more complete docs
for mappings and commands.
6.2.4
- Because of the autocommand switch (see 6.2.0) it
was possible to remove the restriction on the
:set hidden option. It is now possible to use
this option with MBE.
6.2.3
- Added miniBufExplTabWrap option. It is turned
off by default. When turned on spaces are added
between tabs and gq} is issued to perform line
formatting. This won't work very well if filenames
contain spaces. It would be pretty easy to write
my own formatter, but I'm too lazy, so if someone
really needs that feature I'll add it :)
6.2.2
- Changed the way the g:miniBufExplorerMoreThanOne
global is handled. You can set this to the number
of eligible buffers you want to be loaded before
the MBE window is loaded. Setting it to 0 causes
the MBE window to be opened even if there are no
buffers. Setting it to 4 causes the window to stay
closed until the 4th eligible buffer is loaded.
- Added a MinHeight option. This is nice if you want
the MBE window to always take the same amount of
space. For example set MaxSize and MinSize to 2
and set MoreThanOne to 0 and you will always have
a 2 row (plus the ruler :) MBE window.
NOTE: in 6.3.0 we started using MinSize instead of
Minheight. This will still work if MinSize is not
specified, but it is depreciated. Use MinSize instead.
- I now setlocal foldcolumn=0 and nonumber in the MBE
window. This is for those of you that like to have
these options turned on locally. I'm assuming no one
out there wants foldcolumns and line numbers in the
MBE window? :)
- Fixed a bug where an empty MBE window was taking half
of the screen (partly why the MinHeight option was
added.)
6.2.1
- If MBE is the only window (because of :bd for example)
and there are still eligible buffers then one of them
will be displayed.
- The <Leader>mbe mapping now highlights the buffer from
the current window.
- The delete ('d') binding in the MBE window now restors
the cursor position, which can help if you want to
delete several buffers in a row that are not at the
beginning of the buffer list.
- Added a new key binding ('p') in the MBE window to
switch to the previous window (last edit window)
6.2.0
- Major overhaul of autocommand and list updating code,
we now have much better handling of :bd (which is the
most requested feature.) As well as resolving other
issues where the buffer list would not be updated
automatically. The old version tried to trap specific
events, this one just updates frequently, but it keeps
track and only changes the screen if there has been
a change.
- Added g:miniBufExplMaxHeight variable so you can keep
the -MiniBufExplorer- window small when you have lots
of buffers (or buffers with long names :)
NOTE: in 6.3.0 we started using MaxSize instead of
MaxHeight. This will still work if MaxSize is not
specified, but it is depreciated. Use MaxSize instead.
- Improvement to internal syntax highlighting code
I renamed the syntax group names. Anyone who has
figured out how to use them already shouldn't have
any trouble with the new Nameing :)
- Added debug mode 3 which writes to a global variable
this is fast and doesn't mess with the buffer/window
lists.
6.1.0
- <Leader>mbc was failing because I was calling one of
my own functions with the wrong number of args. :(
Thanks to Gerry Patterson for finding this!
This code is very stable (although it has some
idiocyncracies.)
6.0.9
- Double clicking tabs was overwriting the clipboard
register on MS Windows. Thanks to Shoeb Bhinderwala
for reporting this issue.
6.0.8
- Apparently some Vim builds are having a hard time with
line continuation in scripts so the few that were here
have been removed.
- Generalized FindExplorer and FindCreateExplorer so
that they can be used for the debug window. Renaming
to FindWindow and FindCreateWindow.
- Updated debugging code so that debug output is put into
a buffer which can then be written to disk or emailed
to me when someone is having a major issue. Can also
write directly to a file (VERY SLOWLY) on UNIX or Win32
(not 95 or 98 at the moment) or use Vim's echo function
to display the output to the screen.
- Several people have had issues when the hidden option
is turned on. So I have put in several checks to make
sure folks know this if they try to use MBE with this
option set.
6.0.7
- Handling BufDelete autocmd so that the UI updates
properly when using :bd (rather than going through
the MBE UI.)
- The AutoUpdate code will now close the MBE window when
there is a single eligible buffer available.
This has the useful side effect of stopping the MBE
window from blocking the Vim session open when you close
the last buffer.
- Added functions, commands and maps to close & update
the MBE window (<leader>mbc and <leader>mbu.)
- Made MBE open/close state be sticky if set through
StartExplorer(1) or StopExplorer(1), which are
called from the standard mappings. So if you close
the mbe window with \mbc it won't be automatically
opened again unless you do a \mbe (or restart Vim).
- Removed spaces between "tabs" (even more mini :)
- Simplified MBE tab processing
6.0.6
- Fixed register overwrite bug found by Sébastien Pierre
6.0.5
- Fixed an issue with window sizing when we run out of
buffers.
- Fixed some weird commenting bugs.
- Added more optional fancy window/buffer navigation:
- You can turn on the capability to use control and the
arrow keys to move between windows.
- You can turn on the ability to use <C-TAB> and
<C-S-TAB> to open the next and previous (respectively)
buffer in the current window.
- You can turn on the ability to use <C-TAB> and
<C-S-TAB> to switch windows (forward and backwards
respectively.)
6.0.4
- Added optional fancy window navigation:
- Holding down control and pressing a Vim direction
[hjkl] will switch windows in the indicated direction.
6.0.3
- Changed buffer name to -MiniBufExplorer- to resolve
Issue in filename pattern matching on Windows.
6.0.2
- 2 Changes requested by Suresh Govindachar:
- Added SplitToEdge option and set it on by default
- Added tab and shift-tab mappings in [MBE] window
6.0.1
- Added MoreThanOne option and set it on by default
MiniBufExplorer will not automatically open until
more than one eligible buffers are opened. This
reduces clutter when you are only working on a
single file.
NOTE: See change log for 6.2.2 for more details about
this feature
6.0.0
- Initial Release on November 20, 2001
