IdeaVim - Version @VERSION@ for IntellIJ platform version @PLATFORM_VERSION@ This plugin attempts to emulate the functionality of VIM within IntelliJ platform based products. It actually emulates 'gvim' more than 'vim'. IdeaVim can be used with IntellIJ IDEA, RubyMine, PyCharm, PhpStorm, WebStorm and AppCode. Resources: Wiki: https://github.com/olegs/ideavim/wiki/About-IdeaVim-project Homepage: http://plugins.intellij.net/plugin/?id=164 Automatic builds: http://teamcity.jetbrains.com/project.html?projectId=project55 Installation Use the IDE's plugin manager to install the latest version of the plugin. Start the IDE normally and Enable VIM emulation using "Tools|VIM Emulator" menu item. At this point you must use VIM keystrokes in all editors. Disabling the IdeaVim Plugin If you wish to disable the plugin, select the "Tools|VIM Emulator" menu so it is unchecked. You must also select "Options|Keymaps" and make a keymap other than "vim" the active keymap. At this point IDE will work with it's regular keyboard shortcuts. Changes to the IDE Undo/Redo The IdeaVim plugin uses it's own undo/redo functionality so it is important that you use the standard VIM keys 'u' and 'Ctrl-R' for undo/redo instead of the built in undo/redo. An exception might occur if you wish to undo the creation of a new class. For this you must select the Edit|Undo menu since IdeaVim doesn't support this feature. Using the built in undo/redo while editing a file will result in strange behavior and you will most likely lose changes. Escape In the IDE, the Escape key is used during editing to cancel code completion windows and parameter tooltips. While in VIM Insert mode, Escape is used to return back to Normal mode. If you are typing in Insert mode and a code completion window is popped up, pressing Escape will both cancel the window and exit Insert mode. If a parameter tooltip appears, pressing Escape will not make the tooltip go away whether in Insert or Normal mode. The only way to make the tooltip disappear is to move the cursor outside of the parameter area of the method call. (I would love to receive solutions for both of these issues.) Menu Changes In order to emulate the keystrokes used by VIM, several of the default hotkeys used by IDE had to be changed. Below is a list of IDE menus, their default keyboard shortcuts, and their new VIM keystrokes.
