#31 Wasted space before right borders

ui (2)

It seems that here is one wasted space before the right border in each window. Can this be removed so there is more width available for filenames?

    Theoretically, yes, but are you sure you want this? Panes will look asymmetric if borders are clearly visible and there is no extra space character. I'm thinking about adding something like 'tuioptions' (like 'guioptions' in Vim) to be able to turn off borders and control spacing, maybe implementing this ticked will be a start.

    I would still want it. To preserve symmetry you could use a different method
    to indicate the current item in the non-current window. Instead of a '*' perhaps a separate highlight group for it. That would allow the left side to
    also be next to the left border as well.

    I've recently added new highlight group and option to configure * character to my TODO list. If those are implemented, then yes, it will look symmetric if 'tuioptions' controls spaces on both sides of a pane.

    Sounds great. Thanks.

    Added (will be in 0.7.8):

    • OtherLine highlight group;
    • 'tuioptions' to control padding in views and visibility of side borders;
    • 'fillchars' to customize filling of borders (useful without padding as otherwise there is no gap between borders and characters near borders).
