Very basic session persistence
From Vim Tips Wiki
created 2002 · complexity basic · author Michel de Bree · version 6.0
I use the following code in my plugins directory to ease session persistence. If I want my session to persist I use
:mks! and then whenever I open the
session.vim file, my session is restored. If I am working from a restored session and I close Vim, the session is saved automatically. Drawback is that it makes editing
session.vim a bit cumbersome.
au BufRead session.vim so % au VimLeave * call SaveCurrentSession() function! SaveCurrentSession() if v:this_session != "" exe "mksession! " . v:this_session endif endfunction
