I would like to extend the lisp editing shortcuts so SPC k [ and SPC k { would wrap the current form in [] and {} respectively.

I don't know what I need to write in my spacemacs config to enable this only for the lisp editing buffers.

What I did so far:

(spacemacs/set-leader-keys-for-major-mode 'clojure-mode "k [" 'sp-wrap-square)
(spacemacs/set-leader-keys-for-major-mode 'clojure-mode "k {" 'sp-wrap-curly)

But these add only in clojure mode and the shortcuts will be , k [ and , k { instead of the desired SPC k [ and SPC k {

I ended up with this:

(spacemacs/set-leader-keys (kbd "k [") 'sp-wrap-square)
(spacemacs/set-leader-keys (kbd "k {") 'sp-wrap-curly)
