2 Install

2.1 Layer

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add ibuffer to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.

2.2 Grouping buffers

Buffers can be grouped by major-modes or projectile projects. By default buffers are grouped by major-modes.

To change how buffers are grouped set the layer variable ibuffer-group-buffers-by to one of the following supported values:

  • modes to group buffers by major-modes (default)
  • projects to group buffers by projectile projects
  • nil to not group buffers


(setq-default dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '(
  (ibuffer :variables ibuffer-group-buffers-by 'projects)))

3 Key bindings
