textobj-indblock

This Vim plugin provides text objects to act on a block of indentation whitespace based on the indentation of the current line.

This plugin supplements and closely follows the example of the textobj-indent plugin.

In general, that plugin is more useful but on some occasions it can be preferable to act on indentation whitespace directly.

Usage

As usual, on-line documentation is available at :h textobj-indblock.

But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Have a GIF:

demo

The GIF shows the effects of the two text objects 'inner/a block of indentation whitespace' in Visual mode, vio and vao by default. ('o' is right next to 'i' for 'indent'.)

Requirements

Installation

Move the files into their respective directories inside your ~/.vim directory (or your $HOME\vimfiles directory if you're on Windows).

This plugin plays well with plugin managers. For example, with pathogen.vim the installation is as simple as this:

git clone git://github.com/glts/vim-textobj-indblock.git ~/.vim/bundle/textobj-indblock

Don't forget to install textobj-user, too, if you haven't already.
