vim leader maps Space as Leader, keep Backslash and Comma as aliases

To update (replacing the current version) run webi vim-leader.


These are the files / directories that are created and/or modified with this install:


Cheat Sheet

let mapleader = " "

The <Leader> key is typically used for your own custom shortcuts.

By default it's mapped to \ (backslash) - a legacy from a time when \ was in a more accessible place - but most people remap it to , or `` (space).

This vim-leader plugin makes Space the Leader key, but also remaps \ and , as aliases.

How to configure manually

The Leader key MUST be defined before any mappings that use it (probably before any plugins) - pretty much the first thing in your ~/.vimrc.

let mapleader = ' '
nmap <bslash> <space>
nmap , <space>
