Development actions in editor

This is a summary of actions that I use during development.

I aim two things

  • navigate codebase with speed
  • be agnostic in terms of progamming language and IDE


I use IntelliJ based IDEs with vim-plugin installed.

Keystrokes are handled either by IDE or vim plug-in. The intention is to combine powers of IDE and vim together.
