bind-key est une extension Emacs permettant la gestion des raccourcis clavier.



L'utilisateur peut définir ses propres raccourcis clavier que l'on retrouve généralement dans le fichier .emacs. Leur gestion peut s'avérer délicate lorsque leur nombre est important, sans compter que lesdits raccourcis peuvent être écrasés par des nouvelles versions de l'éditeur GNU Emacs.

Développée et maintenue par John Wiegley, la dernière verion de l'extension bind-key est disponible sur la plateforme GNU ELPA[1].

bind-key est un logiciel libre distribué selon les termes de la licence publique générale GNU.



Pour installer ce paquet, exécuter dans Emacs :

M-x package-install RET bind-key RET

;;; Commentary:

;; If you have lots of keybindings set in your .emacs file, it can be hard to
;; know which ones you haven't set yet, and which may now be overriding some
;; new default in a new Emacs version. This module aims to solve that
;; problem.
;; Bind keys as follows in your .emacs:
;; (require 'bind-key)
;; (bind-key "C-c x" 'my-ctrl-c-x-command)
;; If you want the keybinding to override all minor modes that may also bind
;; the same key, use the `bind-key*' form:
;; (bind-key* "<C-return>" 'other-window)
;; If you want to rebind a key only in a particular key, use:
;; (bind-key "C-c x" 'my-ctrl-c-x-command some-other-mode-map)
;; To unbind a key within a keymap (for example, to stop your favorite major
;; mode from changing a binding that you don't want to override everywhere),
;; use `unbind-key':
;; (unbind-key "C-c x" some-other-mode-map)
;; After Emacs loads, you can see a summary of all your personal keybindings
;; currently in effect with this command:
;; M-x describe-personal-keybindings
;; This display will tell you if you've overriden a default keybinding, and
;; what the default was. Also, it will tell you if the key was rebound after
;; your binding it with `bind-key', and what it was rebound it to.
