Google Colab Tips and Tricks

Imported from my Github repo:

Editor

If you are comfortable Vim you can enable Vim keyboard bindings from the settings.

Shortcuts

Majority of Colab shortcuts are multi step shortcuts like Emacs. For example, to see all the available shortcuts you have to press Command/Ctrl + m prefix first then press h.

Terminal

Terminal have a builtin Tmux, which is neat for creating multiple panes. The downside is though you have to learn the Tmux shortcuts if you are not familiar with it. As always, there must be a ton of tutorial on YouTube.
