Some Handy VSCode only key mappings

These are some handy mappings the VSCodeVim team came up with. They are inspired by Vim and work only in Visual Studio code:

  • af is a Visual mode command that selects increasingly larger blocks of text.
  • gh is the equivalent of hovering the mouse over where the cursor is. Super handy in order to enable a keyboard only workflow and still enjoy some features (error messages, types, etc) only available via the mouse.
