Easy ido improvement10 Feb 2015
Heh, I guess I was so busy at work that I missed the opportunity to
make an especially good post for the 50-post landmark. At least
according to M-= (
count-words-region) in my _posts'
dired buffer, this is the 53rd post.
This echoes to my very second post,
easy helm improvement,
which was about implementing a similar function for
So here it is:
(ido-mode) (require 'delsel) (defun ido-backspace () "Forward to `backward-delete-char'. On error (read-only), quit without selecting." (interactive) (condition-case nil (backward-delete-char 1) (error (minibuffer-keyboard-quit)))) (define-key ido-common-completion-map (kbd "DEL") 'ido-backspace)
(setq magit-completing-read-function #'magit-ido-completing-read) (setq lispy-completion-method 'ido)
Note that the
define-key part of the code takes an advantage of a
recent patch to
ido that's available in the trunk. You can find the
old way of binding keys for
ido in an earlier post,
tilde in ido-find-file.
That post actually played a small role in speeding up the patch, for
which we should thank @tarsius.
Note that this behavior will not affect
ido-find-file, since it has its own map.
