I wasn’t happy with the Readline mappings from kakoune-extra, and I wanted them as a separate ‘plugin’ so I rewrote them myself. They’re still not perfect – for example word boundaries are not always consistent with Readline’s behaviour – but my muscle memory is quite pleased with the result. If, like me, you feel as if your hands are tied without line-editing shortcuts, then you might like it too.
I’m relatively new to configuring Kakoune, so if anyone has a better solution for any of these mappings, do comment below or make a pull request
Well, the goal is to emulate Readline as closely as possible, and Alt+Tab in Readline is tab-insert. Readline uses Tab for complete, but I wasn’t sure how best to implement that. Perhaps map global insert <tab> <c-n>? Or <c-p>? Either way it’s not quite the same. I haven’t looked into it all that much.
