Get the path to the current buffer in VIM

In VIM, you can get the path to the current buffer with the keybinding Ctrl+g. This will print that path to your statusline.

You can also get the path by using the % register:

:echo @%

Super helpful if you need to quickly copy/pasta that path for a coworker
