Fixing the Home/End Key Behaviour on Mac OSX

Published Wed, 30 Apr 2014

Something that always drives me mad when using OS-X is the way keyboard bindings for basic text editing are different to Windows/Linux PCs. For a developer this can reduce your productive by a huge margin and adapting when you have to switch frequently (which I have to at the moment), can be a mental hurdle that's hard to manage each time.

Fortunately I found an nice OSS app that mostly solves the problem - Double Command

This app lives in the System Settings and let's you click a few checkboxes to remap the home/end keys, the command key (yay Ctrl+C / Ctrl+V for cut and paste!)

Yay!
