On Google Code, there are a variety of keyboard shortcuts available for the issues page. These end up being amazingly useful, since a common use pattern (at least for me and my colleagues) is to create many issues in rapid order as we begin to test the latest commit in the repository. It would be wonderful if InDefero supported keyboard shortcuts--and, since its general design is (and I mean this in the best way possible) basically a copy of Google Code, it'd be nice if the shortcuts were identical. You can call up a list of Google Code's shortcuts by typing Shift-? on the issue screen. As you can see, there aren't many--but the ones that were picked are tremendously useful.

We already have some shortcuts, which or the one you are missing? http://projects.ceondo.com/help/#q-keyboard

It looks like the current shortcuts are fine enough. Please reopen if you need more shortcuts in the future, I would be glad to add them.

What I'm actually aiming for is a fairly large overhaul of how the issue system works. Google Code's system works somewhat similar to their email client: hitting "c" creates a new issue, you can use "j"/"k" and Enter to navigate to and select an issue, you can hit "r" to respond to an issue, etc. The key bindings currently in Indefero seem less useful than that, since they let you switch tabs and a few other minor things, but not do much once you get there.

Benjamin, if you can provide me with a page where the shortcuts are listed, then I will go add them.

Sure thing. You can go to Google Code, click on an Issues tab, and hit ? to see the list, but they are: j/k: navigate around issues in the list view o: open the issue you're on c: create a new issue (this exists as Shift-a) u: go back to the issue list (this exists as Shift-i) r: reply to an issue (focus on the edit box) s: star an issue (Indefero lacks stars, so this is a bit of a pipe dream) That means the ones that are missing right now, but that would be nice, are basically just equivalents to j/k and o when in list view.

Thanks. For your information, you have stars with InDefero, just check the left of the issue title. Click on the star then see the effect.
