ivy-use-virtual-buffers to see both currently and recently visited buffers in Swiper's
ivy-switch-buffer and it worked great until last month when I opened distant files via ssh/Tramp.
ivy-switch-buffer errors, see below.
- How exactly is
ivy-ignore-buffers(see config below) supposed to work ? On full buffer names (w/ path)?
- How is ivy-switch-buffer trying to connect? I can see in the error buffer that is uses some username that I don't use anymore to connect... Where are those connection details stored?
- Why is
ivy-switch-buffertrying to connect in the first place ?
counsel-recentfdoes not do that, the distant buffers are sitting quietly in the list, and when selected, Emacs connects (using the right SSH credentials / aliases / keys) and opens the file.
Here is my configuration:
(use-package swiper :ensure try :bind (([f4] . ivy-switch-buffer) ([(control c) (f)] . counsel-ag) ([(control c) (g)] . counsel-git) ([(control c) (j)] . counsel-git-grep) ([(control c) (l)] . counsel-locate) ([(control d)] . swiper-ag) ([(control f)] . swiper) ([(control h) (control f)] . counsel-describe-function) ([(control h) (control v)] . counsel-describe-variable) ([(control o)] . counsel-find-file) ([(control shift o)] . counsel-recentf) ([f9] . counsel-rhythmbox) :map ivy-minibuffer-map ([(control f)] . ivy-yank-word) :map read-expression-map ([(control r)] . counsel-expression-history)) :config (progn (define-key ivy-switch-buffer-map [(control w)] (lambda () (interactive) (ivy-set-action 'kill-buffer) (ivy-done)))) :init (setq ivy-use-virtual-buffers t ivy-ignore-buffers '("^\\/ssh" ; doesn't seem to work "\\` " "\\`\\*") ivy-display-style 'fancy ivy-count-format "(%d/%d) " ivy-initial-inputs-alist nil ivy-extra-directories nil))
And the errors:
