in any linux gui environment, u can define custom keyboard shortcuts for anything, whether its executing a shell command to anything u can think of.
i love my macbook, but i really hate how Apple WILL NOT let me customize things the way i want it. they really force you into their philosophies: we say things should be simple for everyone so we will rely on the mouse. this is BS.
well, i recently figured out a way to resize and move my emacs frame with the keyboard, and i wanted to do that with all windows on my mac like in unix. after googling, i found 2 ways:
- mercury mover, which costs $24. no way! the method is a lot like emacs do re mi though. this is good.
- use this guy’s applescripts together with spark.
Spark is a great hotkey manager. Great addon to Mac to bring yet another useful feature from linux. I first used spark with emacs remember mode for jotting down notes in the middle of my work. Will write about that next.
I think i should tweak the applescript to somehow make it like mercury mover.
