Maybe this is not what you want. But emacs 28 adds a third alternative with a 
simpler approach: repeat-mode. It is not for people who want a complex hydra 
experience and many fancy options. 
But for the basic functionality it works, is simpler to configure and much 
faster. Customization is also simpler and pretty clear. And less intrusive 
showing the bindings.

Sadly Hercules and hydra seems low maintained these days. That's why I removed 
both from my config recently.
