Back scratch

Open new scratch window. Additionally allows to load output of Vim command, shell command of register into such buffer.

Thanks

Based on -romainl- script - https://gist.github.com/romainl/eae0a260ab9c135390c30cd370c20cd7

Usage:

  :Scratch "open new, empty, scratch window
  :Scratch ls " show the full output of command :ls in scratch window
  :Scratch !ls -la " show the full output of command :!ls -la in scratch window
  :Scratch @+ " show the full output of '+' register in scratch window

Additions:

  • by default use :new instead of :vnew
  • accepts modifiers like :vertical or :aboveleft to control where the scratchpad will be positioned
  • adds support for opening scratchpads for registers via @ prefix
  • adds :Scratchify to change any buffer into scratchpad

TODO:

  • support for specifying filetype via +ft
You can’t perform that action at this time.
