You've already opted to give your Emacs setup a streak of modal editing malevolence, so why not train yourself to move around your Emacs evil buffer with all the grace and poise of advanced motions. We are not barbarians, after all.
evil-motion-trainer-mode makes Emacs drop lazily repeated
hjkl-based motions after a
configurable threshold, forcing you to think about a more precise motion.
Simply put, these keys are not the best choice for the job in most cases. Word-wise motions (e.g. wW, bB, eE, ge), character searches (e.g. fF, tT, ,, ;) and line jumps (e.g. 10j 5k) will get you there with less keystrokes.
Enable in a buffer with:
Turn on for all buffers:
Configure the number of permitted repeated key presses:
(setq evil-motion-trainer-threshold 6)
Enable a super annoying mode that pops a warning in a buffer:
(setq evil-motion-trainer-super-annoying-mode t)
Add to the suggested alternatives for a key:
(emt-add-suggestion 'evil-next-line 'evil-avy-goto-char-timer) ;; See also: (emt-add-suggestions)
