I have the following line turning hl-line-mode on globally in my init file:
Most of the time, that's how I like it. But sometimes I want to turn it off. I'd hoped that I could somehow override the global setting with a buffer-local one, by running
hl-line-mode with a negative prefix argument. This does turn off the highlight for about a second, then it just comes back. I can, of course, disable
global-hl-line-mode instead, but is there a way to do a buffer or window local override of this setting?
Update Kudos to @lawlist for the necessary mechanics. I bound this up in a little function and am quite happy with it.
(defun ivan/local-toggle-hl-line () "Toggle line highlighting in current buffer" (interactive) (setq-local global-hl-line-mode (null global-hl-line-mode)))
