An Open Source and totally free Vim-like editing plugin for the Eclipse UI design tool

editor's review





Vrapper is an open source, multiplatform and freely distributed plugin for the powerful Eclipse IDE (Integrated Development Environment), especially designed to act as a wrapper for Eclipse-based text editors, providing a Vim-like input scheme for moving around and editing text.

Offers the best of both worlds to Eclipse users

The software tries to offer the best of both worlds to Eclipse users and aspiring developers. It includes operators, motions, counts to repeat motions and operators, the famous dot operator to repeat the last change, registers (unnamed, named (a-z), read-only ("." and "/")), marks (named, "'", ".", "^"), basic search (using /, ?, n, N, *, #), visual mode to highlight text, and key mappings and macros.

Supported motions, operators, search and text objects
