XVim is an open-source Xcode Plug-in that adds Vim keybindings to Xcode.
Installing XVim is really straight forward:
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:XVimProject/XVim.git
makefrom XVim's directory.
Xvim can use a
.xvimrc file, which should be located in your
~/ directory. A simple sample file looks simmilar to a
i kk <Esc> set incsearch " Case-insensitive searching. set ignorecase " But case-sensitive if expression contains a capital letter. set smartcase " Default to global substitutions on lines set gdefault " Use the system pasteboard set pasteboard
XVim can access Xcode's commands by using the
:xccmd command. You can then set your preffered commands in your
" Map <space>b to toggle a breakpoint at the current line nmap <space>b :xccmd toggleBreakpointAtCurrentLine<CR> " Use <space>cm to toggle comments for the selection nmap <space>cm :xccmd commentAndUncommentCurrentLines<CR>
Xcode releases have different UUIDs, to make any Xcode plug-in work, the UUID that the plug-in is using must be updated to match Xcode's. Usually this takes us less than a day, but you can also do it yourself.
Maybe your key mapping is clashing with an Xcode key mapping (or even with other plug-in mapping), try to disable them to see if that fixes the issue.
There are several ways to help out with XVim's development.
- Open up an issue in Github if you find bugs, experience issues or have questions.
- XVim does also support Bounty Source in case you want your issue solved faster or just want to donate to the project.
