🛑 stay-in-place.nvim

Lua GitHub Workflow Status

stay-in-place.nvim is a Neovim plugin that prevent the cursor from moving when using shift and filter actions.

See this plugin in action!

Slogan:

"Any of you fuckin' cursors move and I'll execute every one of you motherfuckers! Got that?" - Neovim Bunny

✨ Features

When you use shift (> or < keys) or filter (= key), Neovim move your cursor at the beginning of the selected region or doesn't keep the cursor on the same character in line mode. I think it's annoying.

This plugin will:

  • keep your cursor at the same position when using >, < or = operators
    Eg. >ip will not put your cursor at the beginning of the paragraph
  • keep your cursor on the same character when using line >>, << or == operators
  • keep visual selection when using >, < or = operators in visual mode

⚡️ Requirements

Neovim >= 0.7.0

📦 Installation

Install the plugin with your preferred package manager:

packer

-- Lua
use({
  "gbprod/stay-in-place.nvim",
  config = function()
    require("stay-in-place").setup({
      -- your configuration comes here
      -- or leave it empty to use the default settings
      -- refer to the configuration section below
    })
  end
})

⚙️ Configuration

Stay-in-place comes with the following defaults:

{
  set_keymaps = true,
  preserve_visual_selection = true,
}

More details on these options is available in the sections below corresponding to the different features.

set_keymaps

Default : true

If true, this will automaticly set keymaps, you can refer to set_keymaps function if you want to set keymaps by yourself.

preserve_visual_selection

Default : true

If true, when performing a shift or a filter in visual mode, this will keep visual selection instead of discarding it.
