Emacs users have a lot of power at their disposal, but in one department they are always short - the number of available non-complex keybindings that they can leverage.
Obviously nobody likes pressing keybindings like
C-p C-v k (or
something like that). One way to get your hands on some extra
keybindings is to utilize the
Super key (it’s the
Windows key on
Win keyboards and the
Command key on Mac keyboards (although most
Super)). One great
Super is that you generally have two of them, which
makes them touch-typing friend. Since almost no packages use those
keys you’re left with plenty of options.
Prelude defines a bunch of
global keybindings that use the
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
If you find pressing
Super comfortable obviously you have the
potential to add quite a lot more keybindings to this list.
P.S. Some keyboards (notably laptop ones) have a
Fn key as well
that’s also usable in Emacs keybindings. Somewhat funny that key is
known in Emacs as
Star Wars fans are undoubtedly adding a
Hyper-Space keybinding to their setups right about now).
