kandi X-RAY | kakoune Summary

kakoune is a C++ library typically used in Editor, Text Editor applications. kakoune has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub.

Kakoune is a code editor that implements Vi’s "keystrokes as a text editing language" model. As it’s also a modal editor, it is somewhat similar to the Vim editor (after which Kakoune was originally inspired). Kakoune can operate in two modes, normal and insertion. In insertion mode, keys are directly inserted into the current buffer. In normal mode, keys are used to manipulate the current selection and to enter insertion mode. Kakoune has a strong focus on interactivity, most commands provide immediate and incremental results, while still being competitive (as in keystroke count) with Vim. Kakoune works on selections, which are oriented, inclusive ranges of characters. Selections have an anchor and a cursor. Most commands move both of them except when extending selections, where the anchor character stays fixed and the cursor moves around. Join us on libera IRC #Kakoune.

            Change an argument in kakoune
            Asked 2019-Oct-22 at 11:33

            Is there any easy way to select/change/delete an argument in kakoune?

            For example, if I have

            You can use the u text-object. So, while inside the parens type u.

            If you do u instead, it will also select the following comma and space.

            How do I select multiple lines going upwards on Kakoune?
            Asked 2017-Nov-17 at 12:45

            In Vim I would enter visual mode with V then just move the cursor up (with k).

            In kak I can select a line with x and I can extend the selection downwards by pressing X multiple times or by moving the cursor down while still pressing shift with J, but if I go up while still pressing shift, with K I keep the selection, but not for the entire line, the selection on the first selected line somehow jumps to column 0.

            It's not ideal, but at this point the best I can find to make full-line selections up is to do what you've described: x and then scroll up by pressing shiftk.

            Only once you've finished scrolling up, you must then expand the selection to include all full lines by pressing altx.

            See the discussion in this Github kakoune issue for some great scripting solutions to this problem that you can add to your kakrc.

            One of those solutions is featured on the kakoune wiki:

            I have a lot of selections hanging around. How do I reduce them to a single one?
            Asked 2017-May-27 at 18:42

            After any Kakoune operation which results in multiple selections (like a global search with %s, for example), I get multiple selections and when move up and down or left or right they all move.

            How do I get back to having just my primary single selection?

            I had to ask on #kakoune @ freenode IRC, the answer is simply space.

            What is the "*debug* buffer" in Kakoune?
            Asked 2017-May-26 at 21:49

            I'm just starting with the Kakoune editor and somehow I was shown the message error during startup, see *debug* buffer for details when I loaded a file with kak.

            I don't know if I'm too stupid to ask this, but I don't know how do I "see debug buffer". The :debug option seems to be there to write something to the debug buffer, not read it.

            It turns out that there's a buffer called "debug", to visit it you must
