Statement of the problem
In the next picture, you can see the behaviour of the mode-line in my emacs session, when there is a single window in the frame.
Except by a problem in my configuration of =diminish= package, it has the information I want.
The problems is that whenever I split the window, I lost useful information... since there is a mode-line for each window. See for example the figure below!
It gets worst as there are more windows in my frame.
What I would like
I'd like the mode-line to behave as the
- there is only one per frame,
- the content depends on the active buffer
Is it possible to hack such behaviour? How? Does anyone try it? ... Or know a package?
I'm not a programmer myself, but I'd appreciate even a hint of where to start hacking!
