  1. Are you using ivy? Then you might try this out. To me it seem more usable than Eyebrowse or any other dedicated package for workspace management.

    1. Define a separate function to show only “views”. I just requested to add this function, which was suggested by the author in a github issue, to the codebase.

    (defun ivy-switch-view ()
    (interactive)
    (let ((ivy-initial-inputs-alist
    ‘((ivy-switch-buffer . “{}”))))
    (ivy-switch-buffer)))

    2. Here is my use-package-config of ivy, just for completeness.

    (use-package ivy
    :bind
    (“C-S-r” . ivy-resume)
    (“H-b” . ivy-switch-view)
    :config
    (setq ivy-use-virtual-buffers t)
    (setq ivy-display-style ‘fancy)
    (setq ivy-count-format “(%d/%d) “)
    (setq ivy-height 20)
    (ivy-mode 1)
    :diminish ivy-mode ” “)

    3. This is an example of pre-defined ivy-views. You can add dynamically ivy-views by calling ivy-push-view or removing them by using ivy-pop-view.

    (setq ivy-views'(
    (“{} notes + internal”
    (horz
    (file “~/org/active/notes.org”)
    (file “~/org/active/internal.org”)))
    (“{} notes + customer”
    (horz
    (file “~/org/active/notes.org”)
    (file “~/org/active/customer.org”)))
    ))
