Hi! I am a beginner at Kakoune and Vim. I just posted two posts on the Subreddit but I’m posting them here too because I’m not sure how much traffic that site gets:
Here is the first:
As this is my first post I can’t post the link to the second but it is reproduced below.
Here is the text of the posts:
Hi! I just found Kakoune. I am learning Vim right now (neoVim actually). People say that there is a steep learning curve but I’m getting the hang of it as I develop muscle memory for the control key/other keys. One of the things that makes vim actually beginner friendly is the excellently written user manual perhaps accessed like this “:help usr_01.txt” which is friendly to navigate through. Is there any such build-in user manual in Kakoune?
This is a really basic question but on the github page https://github.com/mawww/kakoune the basic annotation has things like
<a-[wbe]>my question is what does the ‘a’ stand for? Is there a guide to the notation used on that page?
Thanks for tolerating a beginner. I know these things seem trivial but easy onboarding for beginners is key to making any ecosystem grow.
