Tabs.kak - See open buffers in the status line like tabs in other editors

tabs.kak lets you visualize buffers on the status line as if they were tabs.

I’ve posted this on the subreddit a while back, but it’s become stable enough to post here I think. This attempts to commandeer the status line to use it as a space to show “tabs”, and thus other plugins that use the status line (like powerline.kak) won’t work with tabs.kak.

This is heavily inspired by Delapouite/kakoune-buffers, but also has a fixed visualization of the buffers.

Doesn’t handle too many buffers too well, but it works well for my workflow (multiple kakoune instances, ~3-5 buffers each max).

Let me know what you guys think!
