Ever wanted to navigate in the admin with your keyboard? Coffee is the solution. Just type alt+d to start Coffee and type ahead for the page you want to visit.
How it works
How to use it
Toggle Coffee using the keyboard shortcut alt + D
(alt + shift + D in Opera, alt + ctrl + D in Windows Internet Explorer). You can also use use the alternative alt + k.
Type the first few characters of the task that you want to perform. Coffee will try to find the right result in as less characters as possible. For example, if you want to go the the Appearance admin page, type
ap and just hit enter.
If your query returns multiple results, you can use the arrow up/down keys to choose the result you were looking for.
This will work for all admin pages. In addition to that, there is the
:add command to quickly add content of a specific content type.
Custom commands / hooks for developers
You can define your own commands in your module with
hook_coffee_command(); see coffee.api.php for further documentation.
Note: In version 7.x-2.x the
hook_coffee_command() is replaced by
hook_coffee_commands(), to support the autocompletion functionality.
The 8.x is currently under active development, it is usable. Please test it out an file an issue if you find one.
