ido-select-window

A tiny package to change the window focus in Emacs using ido and the name of each window's buffer.

Yes, there are plenty of packages for switching the window focus. As far as I can tell they're all based on the position of a window (e.g. focus left, focus right, etc.) The switch-window [] package makes this a bit more visual but covers up the contents of the window and doesn't play nicely with my IRC buffers.

I thought it would be an interesting experiment to use ido and the mini-buffer for switching windows based on buffer names. That's what this package does.

Usage

If you're using the Emacs packaging system then this package should automatically load. If not, require it.

Then set a key binding. I like the idea of replacing C-x o:

(global-set-key (kbd "C-x o") 'ido-select-window)
