<Leader> key is mapped to
\ by default. So if you have a map of
<Leader>t, you can execute it by default with
t. For more detail or re-assigning it using the
mapleader variable, see
To define a mapping which uses the "mapleader" variable, the special string "<Leader>" can be used. It is replaced with the string value of "mapleader". If "mapleader" is not set or empty, a backslash is used instead. Example: :map <Leader>A oanother line <Esc> Works like: :map \A oanother line <Esc> But after: :let mapleader = "," It works like: :map ,A oanother line <Esc> Note that the value of "mapleader" is used at the moment the mapping is defined. Changing "mapleader" after that has no effect for already defined mappings.
