actions speak louder than words, so check out this demo:



First there was a happy vim-user, but after some vim plugins,
lots of tricks'n'commands: the vim-user begins to suffer from braindamage.
Keyboardshortcuts are easier to remember, but in vim also its very
easy to get a 'almost-all-my-mappings-are-taken' syndrome.

switching of keyboardmappings..you can have endless mappings now.
Call it keyboardshortcutsmappings or presets if you will.

- use ,m to toggle a mappingmanager-panel which gives LOT of info
- use ,, to cycle thru mappings (remembering this shortcut is enough, rest is self-explanatory)
- [optional] use ,. to view the current mapping
- [optional] use ,/ to select a mapping
- [optional] use ,m change output mode between 'dialog' or 'console'
- [optional] use ,F1 select mapping #1
- [optional] use ,F2 select mapping #2
- ..and so on

install details
following instructions are focused on *NIX based, textmode vim-users, but
might also work on other platforms with a bit of love:

- put mappingmanager.vim into your plugins directory
- add the contents of mappings.vim to your vimrc configuration file
- [optional] multi-user / company installation which keeps things tidy:
   - copy mappings.vim to your global vimconfig dir (example: /etc/vim)
   - copy mappings.vim to your homedir's .vim dir (example: ~/.vim usually exist)
   - copy mappings.vim to your projectdir dir, vim will automatically add projectspecific mappings
