AERC-BINDS(5)

# NAME

aerc-binds - key bindings configuration file format for *aerc*(1)

# SYNOPSIS

The _binds.conf_ file is used for configuring keybindings used in the aerc
interactive client. It is expected to be in your XDG config home plus _aerc_,
which defaults to _~/.config/aerc/binds.conf_. If the file does not exist, the
built-in default will be installed.

This file is written in the ini format with key bindings defined as:

	*<key sequence>* = _<command>_

Where *<key sequence>* is the keystrokes pressed (in order) to invoke this
keybinding, and _<command>_ specifies keystrokes that aerc will simulate when
the keybinding is invoked. Generally this is used to execute commands, for
example:

	*rq* = _:reply -q<Enter>_

Pressing *r*, then *q*, will simulate typing in _:reply -q<Enter>_, and execute
*:reply -q* accordingly. It is also possible to invoke keybindings recursively
in a similar fashion.

You may configure different keybindings for different contexts by writing them
into different *[sections]* of the ini file.

# CONTEXTS

The available contexts are:

*[messages]*
	keybindings for the message list

*[view]*
	keybindings for the message viewer

*[view::passthrough]*
	keybindings for the viewer, when in key passthrough mode
	(toggled with *:toggle-key-passthrough*)

*[compose]*
	keybindings for the message composer

*[compose::editor]*
	keybindings for the composer, when the editor is focused

*[compose::review]*
	keybindings for the composer, when reviewing the email before it's sent

*[terminal]*
	keybindings for terminal tabs

You may also configure account specific key bindings for each context:

*[context:account=*_AccountName_*]*
	keybindings for this context and account, where _AccountName_ matches
	the account name you provided in _accounts.conf_.

Folder-specific bindings can be configured for message lists:

*[messages:folder=*_FolderName_*]*
	keybindings under this section will be specific to the folder named
	_FolderName_. Keybindings from a folder specifier will take precedence
	over account specifiers

Example:

```
[messages:account=Mailbox]
c = :cf path:mailbox/** and<space>

[compose::editor:account=Mailbox2]

[messages:folder=Drafts]
<Enter> = :recall<Enter>
...
```

You may also configure global keybindings by placing them at the beginning of
the file, before specifying any context-specific sections.

# SPECIAL OPTIONS

In addition of user defined key sequences, the following special options are
available in each binding context:

*$noinherit*
	If set to _true_, global keybindings will not be effective in this context.

	Default: _false_

*$ex*
	This can be set to a keystroke which will bring up the command input in this
	context.

	Default: _:_

# SUPPORTED KEYS

In addition to letters and some characters (e.g. *a*, *RR*, *gu*, *?*, *!*,
etc.), special keys may be specified in *<angle brackets>*. The following
special keys are supported:
