Do What I Mean
July 13th, 2021
I used to have Emacs keybindings for files I visit often, like my Emacs config and my org notes. This was fast, but felt a bit overdone, and kept me from accessing too many files this way, because remembering the keybindings would be tedious.
And then I remembered Emacs has bookmarks, which I had used in the past. This takes a few more key strokes (
C-x r b <first letter of bookmark> TAB), but I only have to remember the one keybinding, and can then store as many bookmarks as I like, including remote files with Tramp and git repositories with Magit. At the moment, I have close to 20 of them.
A typical Dûh! moment...
