Minor mode that enables the ability of having a custom keys for working with regions. This is a pretty good way to keep the global bindings clean.
This package was tested with GNU/Emacs 24 only, it should work with others versions too but I can’t ensure anything. Besides from that nothing else is required.
Add this to your .emacs:
(add-to-list 'load-path "/folder/containing/file") (require 'region-bindings-mode) (region-bindings-mode-enable)
Then add some nice bindings that will be enabled only when you happen to be working on a region, Here’s an example setup integrating the excellent multiple-cursors package:
(define-key region-bindings-mode-map "a" 'mc/mark-all-like-this) (define-key region-bindings-mode-map "p" 'mc/mark-previous-like-this) (define-key region-bindings-mode-map "n" 'mc/mark-next-like-this) (define-key region-bindings-mode-map "m" 'mc/mark-more-like-this-extended)
In this use case, you would probably want these bindings to work
within specific scenarios. For example,
make much sense in read-only buffers. You could prevent
region-bindings-mode in these by setting
((lambda () buffer-read-only))
You can also exclude specific modes via
or specify a white-list of allowed modes via
