Follow my <leader>

A session at Vim London January 2014

In this gh issue, Tim Pope declares that "leader maps are pretty lame". That got me thinking about custom Vim mappings, and made me realize that tpope's Vim plugins (which are the gold standard) never use the leader key. How does he do it? Let's talk about the leader key, when to use it, when not to, and what alternatives are out there.
