GC Buffers - Kill garbage buffer

There are many packages that create temporary buffers but don't kill those buffers, either because they don't do that or any unhandled error prevents it from doing that. Over time, these "garbage" buffer can pile up and eat up your memory. For example, there were 1359 garbage buffers created by Flymake Emacs Lisp byte compiler backend over 5 days.

This package's purpose is to clear them automatically, so you can use your memory to edit more files, run more commands and to use other programs.


gc-buffers isn't available on any ELPA right now. So, you must follow one of the following methods:


(quelpa '(gc-buffers
          :fetcher git
          :url ""))


 '(gc-buffers :type git
              :repo ""))


Download the gc-buffers.el file and put it in your load-path.


Clean garbage buffers with M-x gc-buffers. To enable automatically doing this, do M-x gc-buffers-mode.

Don't let buggy packages make Emacs "Emacs Makes A Computer Slow"!
