A shortcut to my favourite org-mode agenda view

As I have mentioned before in my tutorial about todo lists and scheduled tasks in org-mode, my preferred way to view my agenda is to use C-c a n to view a list of my scheduled tasks with unscheduled tasks below that.

I wanted to make a shorter keybinding for this view and I found this advice on how to achieve this. We just need to define a simple helper function like so

;;keybinding for favourite agenda view
;; http://emacs.stackexchange.com/questions/864/how-to-bind-a-key-to-a-specific-agenda-command-list-in-org-mode
(defun org-agenda-show-agenda-and-todo (&optional arg)
  (interactive "P")
  (org-agenda arg "n"))

I then add this to my personal key map

(define-key bjm-map (kbd "a") 'org-agenda-show-agenda-and-todo)

and I can pull up my agenda with C-1 a. You might not want to use the same keybinding as me, but maybe you’ll find the idea helpful.

    What is the theme you are using?

    • This is spacemacs-theme, the dark version. I don’t use spacemacs but the theme is available separately.
