A Hydra for the Org Agenda View Dispatcher

Abo-abo has a great post that demonstrates a hydra for the Org Agenda view menu. Instead of the ugly static menu, you get a beautiful hydra that shows you the state of the toggles and other information.

It's that last bit that's significant here. Hydra has a new extended doc syntax that allows you to dynamically add status items to a hydra menu. For example, in the Agenda view you can see things by day, week, fortnight, month, or year. The hydra includes code that puts a check box next to the chosen display mode. It also displays the status of the toggles such as org-agenda-follow-mode.

If, like me, you use agenda views a lot, you may find this hydra useful. Take a look at abo-abo's post to see what it looks like and what it can do. You may also want to make use of the extended doc syntax in some of your other hydras. If you don't have the hydra package installed, you should consider it. There's a video that shows the basic capabilities but abo-abo has added more to the package since he made the video. Again, I highly recommend you check it out if you haven't already.
