      • Website bookmarks bookmark_name
      • Opening applications chrome
      • Opening files open filename.ext
      • Sleeping the computer sleep
    • Website bookmarks

    • Typing the prefix and hitting enter will open a new tab with the webpage

    • Unique abbreviations will usually only require two characters to match

      • wchat for workchat
      • dpmoulton for @pmoulton diffs
      • tpmoulton for @pmoulton tasks
      • dqueue for my diff queue
  2. Divvy

    • Divvy enables fast window resizing with a single hotkey of your choice
    • The following commands are user configurable

Programming

The following is more helpful if you use command line tools but it may still be insightful otherwise.

  1. Vi mode for terminal

    • This enables you to hop into visual mode to edit your current input line and much more
    • Add this command to the bottom of your ~/.bashrc file to enable by default
