A vim user trying to make the leap to emacs here. A roadblock I'm facing right now is a small convenience-remapping. These remaps aren't important, but my difficulty in making them makes me worry I'm fundamentally misunderstanding something.
The maps as I have them now:
(evil-define-key 'normal evil-normal-state-map (kbd "<key-chord> C-w C-k") 'evil-window-up) (evil-define-key 'normal evil-normal-state-map (kbd "<key-chord> C-w C-j") 'evil-window-down)
These are meant to make the usual vim window motion commands (C-w k, C-w j, etc.) a bit more forgiving on my often rather stupid fingers. Am I missing something fundamental, still, about this? Do I need to create my own minor mode / separate keymapping just for this tiny addition?
The symptom: Even with these mappings in my
.emacs, I still can't switch between windows with C-w C-k and C-w C-j keychords. The minibuffer helpfully reports that those chords are unbound.
