Quickly record notes for yourself, which can then be displayed back to you in the echo area on demand. Notes are organized by topic, and relevant notes are typically deduced for you based on context. If your current major-mode, any of its parents, or any active minor mode is the name of a topic, those notes will be considered relevant and displayed to you.
I use this as an easy way to remind myself of that fancy-new-keybinding I found last week but can't ever remember when I need it:
M-x package-install quickref.
Load it, enable it globally:
~~~ scheme (require 'quickref) (quickref-global-mode +1) ~~~
By default, all actions will be available beneath the prefix
C-c q. You can
change this easily:
~~~ scheme (setq quickref-command-prefix (kbd “C-M-q”)) (quickref-global-mode +1) ~~~
Your quickref entries are stored in the file named by
which defaults to
<user-emacs-directory>/quickrefs. It's probably useful
to keep this file in source control;
C-c q e
C-u C-c q e
C-c q w
C-c q 0
C-c q a
C-c q d
C-c q C-s
C-c q C-l
