This post is part of my Today I learned series in which I share all my web development learnings.

That's a quick and easy one. Šime Vidas shared different short codes to delete forward on MacOS.

I learned that there are different ways that I am not using to delete both ways...

delete = delete backwards
option + delete = delete preceding word
command + delete = delete preceding text in line

fn + delete = delete forward
fn + option + delete = delete the following word
fn + command + delete = delete the following text in line

Later Axel Rauschmayer joined the discussion and shared ctrl+k which lets you delete characters to the end of a paragraph! 😲

Yes? Cool! You might want to check out Web Weekly for more quick learnings. The last edition went out 11 days ago.
