I want to teach myself to prefer hjkl more over the arrow keys in order to stay on the home row. (I am very aware that one should not use hjkl as the main navigation keys as there are more powerful movement commands available yet this is more about breaking my habits in regards to the arrow keys.)
In order to break that habit: How can I disable the arrow keys so that I am forced to use the hjkl or some other navigation method?
As a bonus, it would be helpful if there was a message shown
Dont't use this! yet that it's not mandatory. If they don't work, it will be confusing enough for me to rethink my habits.
wfor next word,
}for next paragraph,
nfor next search result match,
fzfor next occurrence of
zin the current line, etc.) than moving more granularly by single characters. I definitely agree with this. However, HJKL are definitely better than the arrow keys in that you don't have to move your hands from the home row. I'll frequently type something like
jA, which is a lot faster than
<Down>A, and not really beatable by any motion.
