TWO posts in one day!!! Anyway, not really. No need to get your hopes up so high you shit yourself. Nah, this is just a quick blurb about some cool things you can do with the leader key.

  1. Run some tests
  2. Switch to a Rails controller, view, or model
  3. Search through a list of files
  4. Search through a list of buffers
  5. Open a command to be piped to a specific tmux window
  6. Open a visual tree-list of all files in the current director
  7. Turn a line into a comment
  8. Switch the case of an entire word
  9. Show a list of ctags
  10. Do git legwork

...and so much more. Yeah, Leader is pretty much my power animal.
