Vim like ‘leader’ key functionality for blender.
In my workflow I use a lot of shortcuts, so much in fact that now I can’t really find empty slots for new bindings. So I looked to other software that I love and use a lot of hotkeys in: Vim. In Vim shortcuts can be specified as sequence of keys. For example:
nnoremap <leader>cf :call_function()<CR>
Means that after pressing
leader key followed by
f keys call
call_function(). Reading sequence of characters as shortcut means that we get a lot of new possible shortcuts without having to stretch our hands all-over the keyboard.
Thats the functionality I tried to replicate in this add-on.
