Is there a spacemacs command that both closes the window and kills the buffer? In other words, the equivalent of Vim's :q?

  • There is SPC q Q for (kill-emacs) - which I guess is the equivalent of :q? If you want an explicit kill buffer kill window command, why don't you write it and add to your spacemacs-user-config?

    @dangom In Vim :q closes the current window only, it only exits Vim if you are down to your last window.

spacemacs binding for kill-buffer-and-window:

Cx,4,0

Use kill-buffer-and-window to close a buffer and its window. But this will keep emacs running. If you also want to kill emacs (the equivalent of :q) then try evil-quit-all if you're using evil, and save-buffers-kill-terminal for standard emacs quit.

Spacemacs has recently added two shortcuts for kill-buffer-and-window: SPC b x and SPC w x.

In addition to the above answers, in particular the one by sid-kap; for people not on the development branch, i.e. people using the current stable release, the command kill-buffer-and-window is bound to SPC u SPC w d as described (currently) in the key bindings section of the documentation.
