vimprobablerc \- The configuration file for Vimprobable
If you have a .config/vimprobable/vimprobablerc in your home directory, Vimprobable
will read it at startup.
The vimprobablerc file consists of a series of configuration options, one per line. Blank lines and lines starting with a
colon (:) are seen as comments and will be ignored.
.I $HOME/.config/vimprobable/vimprobablerc
Per user configuration file.
.IP set
set is used to alter a default setting. For possible options that can be altered,
see the SETTINGS section below.
Each line looks like this:
.I " " set what=value
Vimprobable is not picky about white space in these lines.
.IP map
map is used to change the default key-binding. For possible options that
can be altered see the MAPPING section below.
Each line looks like this:
.I " " map what=value
Vimprobable is not picky about white space in these lines.
.IP misc
Any command listed under colon commands in vimprobable2(1) will be accepted in the config file as well.
It is possible to map keys modified with eiter Control, Shift or Modkeys.
To map a key modified with Control, use this format: <C-h>
where C stands for the Control-key and h for the h-key.
or <S-k> where S stands for the Shift-key and k for the k-key.
<M1-j> maps the combination of Mod1 and the j-key. Mod1 is
usually the "Alt" key, Mod4 the "Windows" key.
<C-h> : Ctrl-h
<C-k> : Ctrl-k
z<S-i>: z followed by Shift-i
This section describes the possible options that can be changed from

To map the 'R' key to reload to current page, add the following
line into ~/.config/vimprobable/vimprobablerc:
map <S-R> reload
Key can be mapped to any colon commands. Instead of entering an
internal symbol for the key combination to be mapped to, enter
a command line as you would enter it within a running browser
instance. For example:
map <C-s>=:set scripts=false
This would map Control-s to disable Javascript.
map i=:javascript console.log('insertmode_on')
This maps the i key to manually activate INSERT mode.
All settings can be changed on the fly by entering
:set followed by one of the commands in the SETTINGS section
There has not been any significant bug-hunting yet.
