About

Upon keypress this script display a nice list of buffers on the left, which can be selected with mouse or keyboard. As soon as a buffer is selected (Return, double click) the list disappears.

The selection can be cancelled with the same key that is configured to open the list or by pressing q. Movement key and mouse (wheel) should work as one expects.

Buffers that are visible (in any window) are marked with *, ones that are modified are marked with +.

To delete a buffer from the list (i.e. close the file) press d.

Installation

As a Vundle user, add

Plugin 'roblillack/vim-bufferlist'

to your ~/.vimrc or ~/.config/nvim/init.vim.

Alternatively, put bufferlist.vim file into your ~/.vim/plugin directory and set it up like this in your ~/.vimrc:

Usage

Configure a hotkey to open the bufferlist:

map <silent> <F3> :call BufferList()<CR>

Optionally, change some of the settings, like the default and maximum width or the colors used for the sidebar:

let g:BufferListWidth = 25
let g:BufferListMaxWidth = 50
hi BufferSelected term=reverse ctermfg=white ctermbg=red cterm=bold
hi BufferNormal term=NONE ctermfg=black ctermbg=darkcyan cterm=NONE
