    Something that is a bit more advanced, which I'll just throw out there to let you know exists, is sessions. It basically saves all the currently open buffers, tabs, panes, and how they're set up so you can return to them later. You can use them without plugins and open, load, and save them manually, or you can use a session manager (I personally use Neovim-session-manager). That way if you're working on a project for class X, you can save the session, close Neovim or open another session to work on class Y, and you can return to that session whenever you want.

    I use AstroNvim which utilizes to jump between “projects”. You can then save a “project” and find/go to previously saved “projects” and it will cd for you.

  • olddirs.nvim: oldfiles, but for directories
    5 projects | /r/neovim | 28 Dec 2022
    Sharing a lightweight plugin I wrote yesterday which provides some functions for accessing previously used current working directories. I know that this is similar to some other "workspace" / "project" plugins which already exist, so I've pasted the motivation section from the README. >I work in a large monorepo and change my working directory depending on what part of the codebase I'm looking at to give my LSP (gopls) a chance and to improve the usefulness of fuzzy finding files. I want to change the current working directory back to a previously used one without having to configure a "project" or "workspace" beforehand. This requirement is not satisfied (as far as I can tell) by existing similar plugins: > - project.nvim > - telescope-project.nvim > - workspaces.nvim. > - neovim-session-manager > olddirs.nvim is very lightweight and doesn't provide any niceties (out of the box) like some of the above plugins, it's literally just :oldfiles for directories. > \ I say "out of the box" since some features like the searching or browsing of files inside a previous directory can be implemented by adding actions to the olddirs.nvim Telescope picker.

  • Restart neovim from neovim

    You can use a session manager so it would be easy to just quit and reload the last session, at least, this is what I'm doing.
  • which session manager for nvim

    I had the same need and ended up using neovim session manager and haven’t had a need to use anything else

    neovim-session-manager * Automatically save and load sessions to/from a configurable directory based on cwd * Commands to load, save, and delete sessions use, so a telescope picker can be used if dressing.nvim or telescope-ui-select.nvim is also installed
  • Thanks everyone! (Yabs.nvim makes it to 100 stars!)

    Most importantly, big thanks to Shatur (sorry, I looked and I couldn't find his reddit handle...), who was the main maintainer of the plugin for a few months while I was unable to work on it. He added things such as telescope integration, various quality of life improvements, and a few bug fixes. He also was a major asset for some of the things I added myself, just by being there to bounce ideas off of and let me know when there was a better way to do any given thing. Overall, he was a huge help! (Notable neovim plugins by Shatur include neovim-session-manager and neovim-cmake).
