Thank you to the Kakoune community 210+ contributors for a great modal editor in the terminal. I use it daily for the keyboard shortcuts.

Java SE 15 language changes; sealed, permits, and records.
JavaPolicy file syntax and static completions.

I’m continuously updating this, if you want anything that will make your life easier just post it here or hit me with a message or email.

Lots of ways to communicate: love the internet. Bye. :wave:

Three new files provide custom completers for import statements; javaClassHierarchy.kak, javaInterfaceHierarchy.kak, javaAnnotationEnumHierarchy.kak

Usage Completers
import java.lang.Object;

import java.nio.file.attribute.BasicFileAttributeView;



The scaffolding for custom completions @Screwtapello and community any improvements you can see are welcome (awk was necessary due to hang/parse-time).

Small additional benefit is a list of unknown/unfamiliar or what was it again? Close match imports that can be reviewed or copied onto system clipboard and pasted into the java api search field to read the documentation. https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/15/docs/api/index.html

import file

hook global WinSetOption filetype=java %{
  require-module java

  declare-option -hidden completions java_annotation_enum_hierarchy_completions

  set-option window completers option=java_annotation_enum_hierarchy_completions %opt{completers}

  hook -group java-import-statements window InsertIdle .* %{
    try %{
      execute-keys -draft 2b s \A^import<space>\z<ret>

      evaluate-commands -draft %{

        set-option window java_annotation_enum_hierarchy_completions \

Thanks guys. Bye :wave:.

Constant field values are populated immediately and removed subsequently from namespace dependant on fully quailified imports:

import java.lang.Character;


Jumping in-and-out of kak’s ‘insert’ mode twice updates any removals from "$kak_opt_static_words", you do this anyway to jump around in the kakoune editor. I’m ok with that and I welcome any improvements.


On to the next job. Bye :wave:

Will update any/all Java 16 Language features in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile closer to home: Interfacing Kakoune with external programs

UNIX domain socket channels have been integrated into JDK 16. See JEP 380: Unix-Domain Socket Channels and Internet Protocol and UNIX Domain Sockets NIO Example in Java Platform, Standard Edition Core Libraries.

The above linked ‘Example’ mimics some of the capabilities of the socat command-line utility.

Yes, I have been up all night coding and now I have to give the computer back. Bye :wave:

Java SE 16 done. Also reworked the kak’s %sh{} block for the completers.

Let me know what I missed or any troubles you are having. Bye :wave:
