I want something that I figured would be pretty basic, what with all the fancy mark-ring and all, but I can't find a way to get.
I want a global (i.e. across files) no-nonsense "breadcrumbs" behavior - that is, the ability to jump backwards (and forwards!) through the locations I visited.
I really like that locations are pushed into the ring when I search or give movement commands (I'm on spacemacs), and I would also like to have the same behavior when I jump to a new buffer, or follow links in org-mode.
I've found the breadcrumbs package, but I don't know how to go about integrating the setting of those breadcrumbs in all the different movements around files (I also favor a more a solution that's more native to emacs, such as the mark-ring, but beggars can't be choosers...).
