Description

It would be very sweet to be able to navigation the issues list from the keyboard.
examples:

j: down
k: up
o: open/view issue
x: select issue (allowing for multiple issue selection)
?: show keyboard shortcut help

I am sure there are more that would be helpful

Kind of. But here we're speaking about javascript based shortcuts that do not require using Ctrl/Alt/Shift keys like regular html accesskeys.

Shortcuts assigned to unmodified keys would also have the advantage of being likely to work on OS X instead of being overridden by system keybindings. :)

#5 Updated by Austin Smith over 5 years ago

I've implemented these shortcuts in a plugin: https://github.com/netaustin/redmine_keyboard_shortcuts

It still needs testing, but it supports these features and more in Chrome and FF.

#6 Updated by Brian Jacobi over 5 years ago

Anyone test this yet? When we POC'ed Jira, users really liked having the shortcuts available

#7 Updated by Steven Wong almost 5 years ago

but it could not support the internet explorer.

+1 for adding this feature. Redmine is missing this key feature which is now becoming quite hot, and time is ticking.

Would be nice to rename this isse, and the related plugin, to "VIM-like" shortcuts. (Or, better yet (but harder): shift the focus explicitly toward customizable shortcuts.)

Most of those, who also desperately need keyboard shortcuts in general for Redmine, but come (e.g. here, via Google) from all the various other directions than vi, may feel a bit puzzled about why "the" keyboard shortcuts feature of Redmine should mean e.g. "k" for up and "j" for down. ;) Cheers!
