Recently I have been working on projects that often have multiple files of the same name. By default emacs doesn’t give much information to help you switch between the buffers of open files of the same name. At the same moment that I was thinking I need to find a solution to this Pragmatic Emacs posted a nice little solution using uniquify.
This is how do the same using
(use-package uniquify :config (setq uniquify-buffer-name-style 'forward) (setq uniquify-separator "/") (setq uniquify-after-kill-buffer-p t) ; rename after killing uniquified (setq uniquify-ignore-buffers-re "^\\*") ; don't muck with special buffers )
