cbvike -- A VIM like plugin
« on: May 16, 2014, 04:03:38 pm »
Hi, guys, I've developed a VIM like plugin for Code::Blocks. It's based on the origin keybinder plugin. And the first prototype was developed by ayheos. I improved it and retains the name. You can find the previous discussion at http://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/topic,6214.msg106074.html#msg106074

Features

  • Mode Convertion such as NORMAL, INSERT
  • General VIM key shortcuts
  • Regular expression searching
  • Some commands start with ':'
  • An embedded status bar showing commands and status

Download
    You can find the repository and detail description at https://github.com/zmj64351508/cbvike

Demonstration



Change Log
   
    v0.2.1 2014-05-31
        --Support Motion with Operator and duplicate number.
        --Fix bugs   

    v0.2.0 2014-05-23
        --Add support to split window edit.
        --Fix bugs

    v0.1.1 2014-05-17
        --Add an embedded status bar.

    v0.1.0 2014-05-17

Any feedback is welcome

This is really cool. I like it.
And I did some improvement for it. I like to use :w and :q so, I add 2 command for it.
Thanks for create this project.

Hi, where is your project that people test your contribution?
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Are you aware of Neovim ? it is a fork of vim aiming at decoupling the backend from the User Interface (UI) in order to allow IDEs to embed vim? There are already some examples such as nyaovim https://github.com/rhysd/NyaoVim

In the long term, it should prove a better choice then reimplementing vim keystrokes in each and every IDE.

It's cool!! but how to use it with Codeblocks?

I just add "J" function for cbvike. So far, it works as what I expected. But I would like to see more mature solution for that.

Actually, I have did an POC to use eclim as backend, and node.js as the server to build an web based IDE. It works, I can create project, coding with CodeComplete features and compile/run the project. but I need to rebuild the UI by myself. that's too many investment for me.

I have the same question.

I've been using neovim for the past 2 years and I believe it's already a lot better than vim.
As for how to embed into an IDE, I don't know how mature it is yet. I just know Neovim relies on msgpack-rpc for communications between the server and the UI but  one can get more info from their irc or this page:
https://github.com/neovim/neovim/wiki/Related-projects
The atom integration https://github.com/carlosdcastillo/vim-mode created a bit of a buzz back then.

The idea is that one can use (neo)vim with his very own configuration/plugins.

There are some ideas to improve the integration as well:

a few more pointers of interest, the first one explaining how neovim embedding works:
https://github.com/neovim/neovim/wiki/Plugin-UI-architecture
https://github.com/equalsraf/neovim-qt and https://github.com/oakes/SolidOak are examples of such embedding

So, I packaged this for Arch Linux: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cbvike/

Mods: can you add this information to the OP?
