Make The Most Unneeded Key On Your Keyboard Actually Do Something CAPSLOCK

Do you often find yourself accidentally hitting the CAPS key and then trying to code in VIM? Your commands quickly go completely sideways. Many folks remap the CAPS key to ESC but I prefer Cntrl for a few reasons.

  • Esc is an easier movement and even with a small keyboard on a laptop I find it easy to hit
  • OSX Can remap it without and special software.
  • I destroyed my pinky knuckle in my left hand in my early 20s and have arthritis like symptoms that can get aggravated by bending my finger.

Remapping takes a few seconds.
