Vrapper is a plugin that adds Vim-like editing features to Eclipse. It also works with IDEs that are built upon Eclipse, like Nsight Eclipse for example.
Install and use
- To install Vrapper, go to Help -> Install new software -> Add and add the URL: http://vrapper.sourceforge.net/update-site/stable
Eclipse downloads and displays the plugins. Choose Vrapper. Note: Do not choose Vrapper – Split Editor Plugin if you are not on Eclipse 4.x. Do not choose Vrapper – Java Extensions or Vrapper – Python Extensions if you do not have those features in Eclipse. The rest of the install is straightforward.
If you feel the need to customize some Vim settings for Vrapper, do them in
~/.vrapperrc. Only the settings listed in the Vrapper configuration page are supported.
Apart from the usual Vim features, here are some Vrapper-specific features I like to use:
- Eclipse bookmarks can be set easily by using Vim mark feature with uppercase letter.
GVim can be opened on the current file and line by using the command
Tried with: Vrapper 0.36.0, NSight 5.5 and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
