diminish.el lets you fight modeline clutter by removing or abbreviating minor mode indicators.
(require 'diminish) (eval-after-load "filladapt" '(diminish 'filladapt-mode))
‘eval-after-load’ form lets you diminish modes not loaded at Emacs startup.
‘diminished-modes’ doesn’t work on mode lines that use `:eval’ (for example, Projectile uses it to display the current project)
