place.vim allows you to add insertions to your text without moving your cursor. If you suffer from the following problems, this plugin might be for you:
- Forgotten to add a ';' at the end of a line.
- Forgotten var, let, $ or any other variant at the beginning of a line.
- Wanted to insert some text without having to enter insert mode, move to the place, leave insert mode, and go back
Add a mapping of your choice to get place.vim working for you.
nmap ga <Plug>(place-insert) nmap gb <Plug>(place-insert-multiple)
(Examples are using
ga as the prefix key but it can be anything you want)
place.vim works in the 'vim' way. Here are a few examples of what it does
| denotes cursor position
function(na|me, $age) gab$
$thi|s->doSomeStuff = 5 ga$;
$this->doSomeStuff = 5;
It also supports multiple line motions
This is a really long line gaG.
This is a really long line.
A more complex motion (t)
T|his is Y sentence gatYM
This is MY sentence
I want to enter 'var' or 'let' like you said I could in the README!
Sure thing, there's a separate mapping
<Plug>(place-insert-multiple) to map to. Read the docs.
Now, when you finish your motion, an input box will appear with what you want to insert.
