ibuffer-mode is a wonderful replacement for the built-in
list-buffer command, and allows buffers to be grouped
programatically, e.g. by major mode.
If, like me, you mostly work on version-controlled files, you might like to see your buffers grouped by the associated version control project.
ibuffer-vc comes in: it lets you:
- Group your buffers by their parent vc root directory
- See the VC status of the associated files
- Sort buffers by their VC status
