Introduction

This is a continuation of evil-indent-textobject. It provides six new text objects to evil based on indentation:

  • ii: A block of text with the same or higher indentation.
  • ai: The same as ii, plus whitespace.
  • iI: A block of text with the same or higher indentation, including the first line above with less indentation.
  • aI: The same as iI, plus whitespace.
  • iJ: A block of text with the same or higher indentation, including the first line above and below with less indentation.
  • aJ: The same as iJ, plus whitespace.

Usage

You can install the package and bind the auto-loadable text objects yourself:

  • evil-indent-plus-i-indent
  • evil-indent-plus-a-indent
  • evil-indent-plus-i-indent-up
  • evil-indent-plus-a-indent-up
  • evil-indent-plus-i-indent-up-down
  • evil-indent-plus-a-indent-up-down

Or you can call (evil-indent-plus-default-bindings) to use the default bindings (listed above). They are:

(define-key evil-inner-text-objects-map "i" 'evil-indent-plus-i-indent)
(define-key evil-outer-text-objects-map "i" 'evil-indent-plus-a-indent)
(define-key evil-inner-text-objects-map "I" 'evil-indent-plus-i-indent-up)
(define-key evil-outer-text-objects-map "I" 'evil-indent-plus-a-indent-up)
(define-key evil-inner-text-objects-map "J" 'evil-indent-plus-i-indent-up-down)
(define-key evil-outer-text-objects-map "J" 'evil-indent-plus-a-indent-up-down)

Differences from evil-indent-textobject

The evil-indent-textobject package provides text objects that select lines with the exact same indentation as the current line. Lines that are either indented more, or which are empty, will interrupt the selection, contrary to expected behaviour. This package correctly handles these cases.
