Category “Switch Window” — 7 articles

Thanks to amazing readers of planet emacsen, two annoyances of switch-window.el have already been fixed! The first is that handling of C-g isn’t exactly an option after all, and the other is that you want to avoid the buffer creation in the simple cases (1 or 2 windows only), because it’s the usual case. I’ve received code to handle the second case, that I mostly merged. Thanks a lot guys, the new version is on emacswiki already!

So it’s Sunday and I’m thinking I’ll get into el-get sometime later. Now is the time to present dim-switch-window.el which implements a visual C-x o. I know of only one way to present a visual effect, and that’s with a screenshot: So as you can see, it’s all about showing a big number in each window, tweaking each window’s name, and waiting till the user press one of the expected key — or timeout and stay on the same window as before C-x o.
