vim-bbye plugin for Vim

📅 2014-May-06 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

If you use Vim to work on source code files, you end up opening multiple buffers. The command to delete an open buffer in Vim is :bdelete. This removes the buffer, but it also removes the window holding that buffer.

The vim-bbye plugin can be used to safely delete a buffer, without removing the window holding it.

You can get the source code of the plugin here and it can easily be installed using Pathogen.

To delete a buffer safely use the command :Bdelete
