Do you miss the days of tapping out text on a typewriter, watching the page slide slowly to the left as you typed, then zinging back to the right for each new line? Well, do I have the Kakoune plugin for you!
The other day I came across a post on r/badUIbattles depicting a text editor that moved its window across the screen as the user typed, like the page in a typewriter. It was cute, I grinned then closed the tab, but afterward I kept wondering if I could do the same thing in Kakoune, possibly by adding very wide line-specs highlighter to push the buffer away from the left edge of the terminal. It turns out, yes! It can be done.
