Currently the :terminal command keeps the window open after the job exists. The idea is that you have a chance to see the job output, you might want to yank it. Closing the window automatically might mean you loose that text, there is no way to get it back.
However, in practice I find that I mostly want the window to close as soon as the job finishes. So how about changing the default behavior? Currently: :terminal requires "exit<CR>:q<CR>" to close :terminal ++close requires "exit<CR>" to close With different default: :terminal requires "exit<CR>" to close :terminal ++noclose requires "exit<CR>:q<CR>" to close Good idea or bad idea? -- hundred-and-one symptoms of being an internet addict: 2.
