Transient State menus

Transient state menus make it simple to run commands multiple times, using a single key press, from a specific sub-set of commands.

For example, Font Scaling transient state menu allows you to repeatedly increase the size of the buffer font just by using the + key. The Font Scaling transient state menu contains the sub-set of commands related to scaling, so you can decrease the font size just with the - key and reset the font with 0.

Transient State - scaling text

Transient-states are usually triggered by using a keybinding with the following pattern: <Leader> <group> . where group is the category the transient-state falls under.

When in a transient-state you will see documentation at the bottom of your window. To exit a transient-state press q.

Examples of transient state menus

Keybindings Transient state description
SPC b . buffer management
SPC e . errors
SPC k . lisp state
SPC w . window management
SPC z . code folding
SPC z f zoom frame size
SPC z x Font Scaling (x for text)
SPC n +/- Change the value of a number

Hydra menus

Spacemacs uses hydra to create these transient states. Some packages also include their own Hydra menus. An example of this is the Clojure refactor hyrda menu.

  • C-c C-f h h - clj-refactor (hydra menu)

Propose transient state keybinding for Clojure layer - cljr-refactor

hydra-cljr-help-menu/body is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `clj-refactor.el'.


For more information check the manuals.

Call the body in the "hydra-cljr-help-menu" hydra.

The heads for the associated hydra are:

"n": ‘hydra-cljr-ns-menu/body’, "c": ‘hydra-cljr-code-menu/body’, "p": ‘hydra-cljr-project-menu/body’, "t": ‘hydra-cljr-toplevel-form-menu/body’, "s": ‘hydra-cljr-cljr-menu/body’, "q": ‘nil’

The body can be accessed via ‘hydra-cljr-help-menu/body’. ```
