Introduction to Ibuffer (Emacs)

Raw link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KN_oSLFf-k

ibuffer is a library that is built into Emacs. It allows us to operate on the buffer list in a number of ways. We can sort, mark, filter using several predicates such as buffer name, major mode, filesystem path.

Furthermore, ibuffer provides convenient access to other built-in commands, such as query-replace and occur. You can use these to operate on a subset of marked buffers.

Check my dotemacs for configurations on this and other tools.
