unimpaired.vim

Much of unimpaired.vim was extracted from my vimrc when I noticed a pattern: complementary pairs of mappings. They mostly fall into four categories.

There are mappings which are simply short normal mode aliases for commonly used ex commands. ]q is :cnext. [q is :cprevious. ]a is :next. [b is :bprevious. See the documentation for the full set of 20 mappings and mnemonics. All of them take a count.

There are linewise mappings. [<Space> and ]<Space> add newlines before and after the cursor line. [e and ]e exchange the current line with the one above or below it.

There are mappings for toggling options. [os, ]os, and cos perform :set spell, :set nospell, and :set invspell, respectively. There's also l (list), n (number), w (wrap), x (cursorline cursorcolumn), and several others. Consult the documentation.

There are mappings for encoding and decoding. [x and ]x encode and decode XML (and HTML). [u and ]u encode and decode URLs. [y and ]y do C String style escaping.

And in the miscellaneous category, there's [f and ]f to go to the next/previous file in the directory, and [n and ]n to jump between SCM conflict markers.

The . command works with all operator mappings, and will work with the linewise mappings as well if you install repeat.vim.

Installation

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-unimpaired.git

Once help tags have been generated, you can view the manual with :help unimpaired.
