I want to hide all Dired buffers as major mode in Ibuffer.


(add-to-list 'ibuffer-never-show-predicates "magit*")

ibuffer-never-show-predicates accepts a regexp and a function.

How can I hide all Dired buffers in Ibuffer?

Yes, you can write a predicate function for that:

(defun my-dired-mode-buffer-p (buf)
  "Non-nil if buffer BUF is in `dired-mode'."
  (with-current-buffer buf
    (derived-mode-p 'dired-mode)))

(with-eval-after-load "ibuffer"
  (add-to-list 'ibuffer-never-show-predicates #'my-dired-mode-buffer-p))
  • It works. thank you.
