This package provides means for a very intuitive workflow in regards to tab (items) management. It's comprised of two concepts: treating the collection of all pane items as a wheel, and being able to easily navigate between a few items under your immediate attention.
This workflow is comprised entirely using 4 commands:
alt-<N>switch to N-th most recently active item
ctrl-p(or other) rotate item "wheel" to the left
ctrl-n(or other) rotate item "wheel" to the right
fuzzy-finder:toggle-buffer-finder) bring up a deep item
Most often I use
alt-4 to navigate between a few files I'm
Remaining commands are used to find something farther down.
ctrl-b allows you
to find item by its name but I actually find myself using
ctrl-n more often.
I also use
ctrl-n to "forget" about the item, and
ctrl-p to bring it
back. The wheel metaphor is mostly there for intuition, as it is hard to
describe item destination otherwise.
I use following snippet to enable the key bindings as described above. You can
add this to
keymap.cson (Edit > Keymap). Note: this will override default
'atom-workspace': 'ctrl-p': 'pane:show-previous-item' 'ctrl-n': 'active-tab-in-front:bury-active-item'
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
