smart-forward.el

smart-forward gives you semantic navigation, building on expand-region. It is most easily explained by example:

function test() {
  return "semantic navigation";
}

With point at the start of the quotes,

  • smart-forward would go to the end of the quotes
  • smart-backward would go to the start of return, then to the {.
  • smart-up would go to the {
  • smart-down would go to the }

With point at the start of function,

  • smart-forward would go to the }

With point at the start of {,

  • smart-forward would go to the }
  • smart-backward would go to the start of function

I use M-up/down/left/right arrows for this.

Installation

Start by installing expand-region.

(require 'smart-forward)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-<up>") 'smart-up)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-<down>") 'smart-down)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-<left>") 'smart-backward)
(global-set-key (kbd "M-<right>") 'smart-forward)

Contribute

smart-forward is a thin wrapper around expand-region. Most fixes to smart-forward belong there.
