Spacemacs key bindings ported to Vim.

Please open an issue or create a pull request if there is a Spacemacs key binding or plugin specific key binding that you use which is not included.

Installation

Using Plug:

Plug 'jimmay5469/vim-spacemacs'

Using Vundle:

Plugin 'jimmay5469/vim-spacemacs'

Leader Key

By default this plugin uses whatever leader key you have set up. If you like Spacemacs and you aren't already using <SPACE> as your leader key, then you can set it in your .vimrc using the following:

let mapleader = "\<SPACE>"

You can also use <SPACE> just for this plugin without changing your leader key:

let g:spacemacs#leader = '<SPACE>'

Enable Plugin Specific Key Bindings

There are currently key bindings for the following plugins:

let g:spacemacs#plugins = [
  \ 'airblade/vim-gitgutter',
  \ 'easymotion/vim-easymotion',
  \ 'kien/ctrlp.vim',
  \ 'mbbill/undotree',
  \ 'rking/ag.vim',
  \ 'scrooloose/nerdtree',
  \ 'shougo/unite.vim',
  \ 'szw/vim-maximizer',
  \ 'tpope/vim-commentary',
  \ 'tpope/vim-fugitive',
\ ]

Pick and choose based on which plugins you have installed. If there are duplicate key bindings across plugins the last one in this list will win.

Again: please open an issue or create a pull request if there is a Spacemacs key binding or plugin specific key binding that you use which is not included.

Exclude/Overwrite Key Binding Patterns

If you would like to customize or disable key bindings simply provide a list of regex patterns to exclude:

let g:spacemacs#excludes = [
  \ '^b',
  \ '^fs',
\ ]
nnoremap <LEADER>fs :wa<CR>

Using vim-leader-guide For Discoverability

If you would like a key binding guide like in Spacemacs, hecal3/vim-leader-guide should work fine. All you need to do is install it and it will pick up the key bindings from this plugin.

Plug 'hecal3/vim-leader-guide'
nnoremap <silent> <LEADER> :<C-U>LeaderGuide '<SPACE>'<CR>
vnoremap <silent> <LEADER> :<C-U>LeaderGuideVisual '<SPACE>'<CR>

I am considering adding a dictionary of group names and descriptions that you can use if desired.

Footnotes

I don't always use Vim, but when I do I use Spacemacs key bindings

You can’t perform that action at this time.
