Slime Tips

Little known features of Slime.

3 notes &


Slime has many buffers, and sometimes it’s not easy navigating between them, slime-selector simplifies this task.
It’s not bound to any key by default, I bind it globally to C-z

(global-set-key "\C-z" 'slime-selector)

Then it allows you to select a buffer by a letter.
Some of the most useful shortcuts are listed here, the full list can be seen by pressing “?”.
