Mac Cursor Best Configuration

This is actually a note to myself when configuring cursor behavior on mac. Credits to @hafci.

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false

If you have the dock on autohide and want it to open directly with no delay:

defaults write autohide-delay -float 0

Set a blazingly fast keyboard repeat rate:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain KeyRepeat -int 0

Set a shorter Delay until key repeat:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain InitialKeyRepeat -int 12


EDIT: This works with old macs, but for new Yosemite just go to system keyboard and max the first two sliders. That works better!
