I'm currently using helm-buffer, and I have bind my c-x b to (helm-buffers-list),however when I switch buffer, I still have to: 1. c-x b 2. type some works 3. enter

sometimes, I probably just switch to prev/next buffer which can be done with switch-to={prev|next} buffer. but I can't remember who is the prev/next buffer.

is there anyway to show top 5 used buffers at the bottom of buffer?

  • github.com/manateelazycat/awesome-tab is the thing I need. supper easy to use. – zhihuifan Jan 12 '19 at 15:27
  • If that's super easy to use, then Helm is ultra easy. With more tabs to switch between - Helm is unexceededly easy. With identically named files in different paths Helm is unparalleled. – Alexandr Karbivnichiy Jan 12 '19 at 17:20

Better helm-mini instead of helm-buffers-list

helm-mini contains two pages: helm-buffers-list and helm-recentf(Recentf built-in package).
C-o to jump up/down between pages in buffer.

  • A word of support there. But I don't use recentf anymore and instead, rely on savehist. Thanks for the C-o comment. I didn't know about that. – RichieHH Feb 7 '20 at 8:23
