Hey Tech Community! What are your favorite shortcuts?

I was pair programming the other day when my programming partner Christian used a keyboard shortcut in Codepen that I didn't know but was happy to learn! (Command F or Ctrl F to search through your code)

I feel like I miss out on all of these "commonly known" shortcuts.

So what are shortcuts in web development you have learned and/or use often?

Emmet is definitely handy to know for frontend dev. Here's the official Emmet Cheat Sheet. VS Code supports it out of the box.

I imagine other editors might as well or at least have a plugin for it.

 

Ctrl+tab to move between screens/ areas in the IDE

 

CTRL + CMD + SPACEBAR and you get all the emojis delivered to you. 😍

 

Oooh that's a good one! I do enjoy emoji😬

 

Ctrl + P to quick nativage between files

 

Nice. Going to have to try that one.

 

Ctrl+F hand's down!

I love it so much I'll be reading a physical book and I'll have the urge to type it...

 

πŸ˜‚Nice. It has made working with my code in CodePen so much faster now.
