My Turn for Covid Vacine

The following came for the New York Times

Based on your risk profile, we believe you’re in line behind 118.5 million people across the United States.

When it comes to Connecticut, we think you’re behind 1.2 million others who are at higher risk in your state.

And in Litchfield County, you’re behind 56,500 others.

Update

I got my first shot 2021-02-24 so I think I beat this time frame

Default bracket mappings

By default, lh-brackets comes with a few ready-to-use mappings: * some are global and apply to all filetypes, * other are specialized for various filetypes: * C and C++ * HTML * Javascript * Markdown * Perl * Ruby * (La)TeX * VimL

The default mappings can be inhibited with the options (bpg):cb_no_default_brackets, g:cb_enable_default and g:cb_disable_default. See :h :Brackets-default.

Global mappings

The following mappings apply to all filetypes (unless specified otherwise, or specialized).

in mode insert visual normal
keys expands into .. surrounds the selection with … 2 surrounds the current …
( (<cursor>)«» (<selection>) word
[ [<cursor>]«» 1 1
<leader>[ [<selection>] word
{ {<cursor>}«»3 {<selection>} word
<leader>{ {\n<selection>\n}«» line
" (1 double quote) "<cursor>"«» 1 1
"" "<selection>" word
' '<cursor>'«»4 1 1
'' (2 single quotes) '<selection>' word
<leader>< <<selection>> word

Notes:

  • 1 Not defined to avoid hijacking default vim key bindings.
  • 2 The visual mode mappings do not surround the current marker/placeholder selected, but trigger the INSERT-mode mappings instead.
  • 3 No newline is inserted by default. However, hitting <cr> in the middle of a pair of curly-brackets will expand into {\n<cursor>\n}.
  • 4 This mapping is neutralized for text filetypes – the list of text-filetypes is defined in lh#ft#is_text()
  • «» represents a marker/placeholder, it may be expanded with other characters like <++> depending on your preferences.
  • These mappings can be disabled from the .vimrc by setting g:cb_no_default_brackets to 1 (default: 0)

C and C++ mappings

See lh-cpp documentation for the complete mappings table.

The main differences from the global table are: * } jumps to the next non whitespace/newline character that is a } if g:cb_jump_over_newlines equals to 1 (default case). If you want to jump after the } only if it’s exactly right after the cursor, then set g:cb_jump_over_newlines to 0 in your .vimrc. See #26. When not jumping, } is simply inserted.

  • In visual mode, <localleader>{ surrounds the selection with a pair of curly brackets (and newlines are introduced).
  • <tt> is recognized as an opening bracket (I use it a lot to write Doxygen code instead of \c when I need to type several things).
  • ; will try to close parenthesis – set (bpg):[{ft}_]semicolon_closes_bracket to 0 to inhibit this setting.
  • <bs> take care of semi-colons after the closing curly-bracket – set (bpg):[{ft}_]semicolon_closes_bracket to 0 to inhibit this setting.
in mode insert
keys expands into ..
< after #include, template, typename or _cast <<cursor>>;
{ after struct, class, enum or union {<cursor>};
[ after a [ [[<cursor>]]«»
] before ]] close all ]]

HTML mappings

The main differences from the global table are: * Typing < twice results in &lt;, and <> results in &gt;. * In visual mode, <localleader>< surrounds the selection with a pair of angle brackets.

Javascript mappings

The main differences from the global table are: * In visual mode, <localleader>{ surrounds the selection with a pair of curly brackets (and newlines are introduced).

Markdown mappings

New mappings are avaible.

in mode insert visual normal
keys expands into .. surrounds the selection with … 2 surrounds the current …
_ _<cursor>_<++> 3 _<selection>_ word
_ after a _ __<cursor>__<++> n/a n/a
* *<cursor>*<++> 3,4 *<selection>* word
* after a * **<cursor>**<++> n/a n/a
` `<cursor>`<++> `<selection>` word
~ <del><cursor></del>«» 1 1
<localleader>~ <del><cursor></del> word

Notes:

  • 1 Not defined to avoid hijacking default vim key bindings.
  • 2 The visual mode mappings do not surround the current marker/placeholder selected, but trigger the INSERT-mode mappings instead.
  • 3 Within a pair of backquotes (code marker), formatting pairs are not expanded
  • 4 Right after spaces at the beginning of the line, * is not expanded: it will serve to start a new point in a bullet-list.
  • <bs> has been updated to handle the new pairs of brackets.

Perl mappings

The main differences from the global table are: * In visual mode, <localleader>{ surrounds the selection with a pair of curly brackets (and newlines are introduced). * In visual mode, <localleader>< surrounds the selection with a pair of angle brackets.

Ruby mappings

  • In normal mode, <C-X>{ replace begin-end block by {-}, or the other way around.

(La)TeX mappings

New and specialized mappings are avaible.

in mode insert visual normal
keys expands into .. surrounds the selection with … 2 surrounds the current …
( (<cursor>)<++> (<selection>) word
( after a \ \(<cursor>\)<++> n/a n/a
{ {<cursor>}<++> {<selection>} word
{ after a \ \{<cursor>\}<++> n/a n/a
[ [<cursor>]<++> [<selection>] word
[ after a \ \[<cursor>\]<++> n/a n/a
<leader>[ [<selection>] word
$ $<cursor>$<++> 1 1
<leader>$ $<selection>$ word

Notes:

  • 1 Not defined to avoid hijacking default vim key bindings.
  • 2 The visual mode mappings do not surround the current marker/placeholder selected, but trigger the INSERT-mode mappings instead.
  • In (La)TeX, <++> is used as a placeholder instead of «».

VimL mappings

New and specialized mappings are avaible.

in mode insert visual normal
keys expands into .. surrounds the selection with … 2 surrounds the current …
( (<cursor>)«» (<selection>) word
( after a \ \(<cursor>\)«» n/a n/a
< <<cursor>>«» 5 1 1
<leader>< <<selection>> word
" "<cursor>"«» 6 1 1

Notes:

  • 1 Not defined to avoid hijacking default vim key bindings.
  • 2 The visual mode mappings do not surround the current marker/placeholder selected, but trigger the INSERT-mode mappings instead.
  • 5 except after an if, a while, or within comments. Still this rule knowns an exception: within a string, or after a \, < is always converted to <>. Does not handle special characters like '< and '>
  • 6 except for comments, and special attention is given when the cursor is within strings
