First off want to say I love the idea of kakoune. That it tries to do one thing well and be easily extensible really speaks to me. As an avid neovim user, I’ve been trying to evaluate the pros and cons of switching, and right now the big one for me is the ability to replay a macro against a bunch of different files. Being able to record a complex macro, load up all my targets in
args and execute the macro either in parallel (argdo) or in series (advance to next file as part of the macro) has proved invaluable refactoring files, especially on larger codebases. I’d rather learn one tool and learn it well, so having to revert to vim for changes like these might be a deal breaker for me. So I’d love to hear the communities take on this, and potential solutions.
Thanks in advance!
