Is it possible to add VI / VIM keybindings to the writer for macOS?
on 18 Nov, 2016 09:10 AM
some of us are vim fanatics and really willing to add vim
bindings, but right now is not on top of our priorities.

+1 for VIM in Bear for Mac. Besides programming, Bear is my most used writing application. Thank you!

+1 -- this would enable world peace.

+1 to this!

+1 But totally understand that this wouldn't be on the top of the list.

This topic looks to be from 11/18/2016. I was curious if there were any updates as to the progress of adding in vi/vim keybindings.

@Jeffrey W, here's the link (http://help.shinyfrog.net/discussions/bear/8610-feature-requestvim-keybinding-and-line-number-of-code-block) to a thread from less than a month ago with the developers latest response on keybindings.

I will love this app forever if this had vim binding.

I would be willing to pay double for VIM support! Thank you for this app. I love it!

Yes please. I just bought Pro and that's the only thing I'm currently missing. :D

+1 to this. I would seriously pay extra to have vim keybindings.
Does anyone know a way we could somehow build this ourselves?

@Danilo Bonardi can you look at NeoVim? Perhaps you can use it in server mode like all these other GUIs are doing: https://github.com/neovim/neovim/wiki/Related-projects#gui

@Dorian Very interesting, I'll take a look.

+1 for VIM keybindings
on 15 Feb, 2018 02:34 AM
Please please...Vim will bring love & peace

If it can help some of you before a native implementation, I "kind of" use VIM keybinding on Bear and everything else using Keyboard Maestro.
on 19 Feb, 2018 09:32 AM
@Jon This sounds interesting. I don't know Keyboard Maestro, can you share your "keyboard layout" or something which allow me to replicate your configuration?

For example, when it comes to navigating VIM like, I have those simple shortcuts set.
I have a ton of automation made using Keyboard Maestro. It helps me to fill some of the features not implemented by some applications that I use.

+1 vim keybindings
This'll also make Bear gain 10x more audience among programmers :)

+1 Vim mode would be awesome!
