I'm using this for projections in rails.vim.



Check out these must have mappings for working with JSON in Vim:

  • aj provides a text object for the outermost JSON object, array, string, number, or keyword.
  • gqaj "pretty prints" (wraps/indents/sorts keys/otherwise cleans up) the JSON construct under the cursor.
  • gwaj takes the JSON object on the clipboard and extends it into the JSON object under the cursor.

There are also ij variants that target innermost rather than outermost JSON construct.


If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/tpope/vim-jdaddy.git
