(Emacs+Org-Mode) A Hydra To Help Describe

Do you forget how to get help describing things? I always do.

Here is how I remember.

Nearly everything is built in and I like it better than using the built-in help GUI.

(defhydra help/hydra/left/describe (:color blue
                                           :hint nil)
Describe Something: (q to quit)
_a_ all help for everything screen
_b_ bindings
_B_ personal bindings
_c_ char
_C_ coding system
_f_ function
_F_ flycheck checker
_i_ input method
_k_ key briefly
_K_ key
_l_ language environment
_L_ mode lineage
_m_ major mode
_M_ minor mode
_n_ current coding system briefly
_N_ current coding system full
_o_ lighter indicator
_O_ lighter symbol
_p_ package
_P_ text properties
_s_ symbol
_t_ theme
_v_ variable
_w_ where is something defined
