TIL: don't use space as your leader in vim if you want to use the a.vim plugin
I just discovered that the
a.vim plugin almost breaks my vim flow.
You might know the
It was made to switch between source file and header file, including
split-opening it and so on. It is really neat and I really like the idea. So I
installed it. But unfortunately, it uses some insert-mode mappings which are
<Leader> ... something. And as my Leader is space, it completely
broke my vim flow, as everytime when I hit space, vim waits to complete my
mapping... but I wasn't actually using a mapping, I was just typing.
This little offset broke everything for me... I could barely use vim. You might now say that I could set the timeout for vim to something small, like 300 or something. I tell you: No! It's just not the same.
So, I removed the
a.vim plugin again. Sadly. Maybe there is an option to
configure on what it is mapped, but I really don't care this much anymore!
