Focus mode is a state where you are focusing on one thing and one thing only. This is what this plugin does for you.
No matter the initial layout of your Vim session, once you activate focus mode all buffers except for the current one will be closed. Also, the only remaining buffer will be centered in your Vim window so you can have it in the center of your viewing area. When you exit focus mode all your previously opened buffers will be restored for you along with their corresponding windows.
No requirements (except Vim of course). This is a stand-alone plugin with no outside dependencies.

By default the plugin maps the
<leader>fmt combination for toggling the focus
mode. You can set your own combination by adding the following lines in your

Be sure to use
nmap instead of
noremap as we are counting on the result
being remapped here. This is to prevent the plugin leaking stuff into the
global namespace as much as possible.
You can set the desired width of the focused buffer while in focus mode. There are several ways to do this in order of priority:
textwidthVim option is set, it will be used.
If it's not set, you can set
g:focusmode_widthvariable at any time before entering the focus mode and Focus.vim will use that. If used regularly, put it in your
.vimrcfile. For example:
let g:focusmode_width = 72
If the previous values were not set, the default value (80) is used.
