I like to use “vi mode” in my shell. You can activate it by using
set -o vi in most shells. “vi mode” allows users to use vim commands to manipulate the shell, like jumping around text objects and scrolling through history with vim keys.
Now that I’m building a lot of muscle memory in Kakoune, I always find myself doing completely wrong things in my shell! I would love to have a “kakoune mode” for the shell so that I could unify my hotkeys and reduce the context-switching in my brain .
- Is anyone aware of a “kakoune mode” for the shell?
- Would anyone be willing to build one if it doesn’t exist?
- Could anyone share resources to learn more about tackling a project like this? I have no idea where to start and this looks like it could be a fun side-project. For context, I use
zshand don’t plan on switching for the near future
