Iedit.nvim

A lua rewrite of emacs's iedit.

Edit one occurrence of text and simultaneously have other selected occurrences edited in the same way.

Usage

  1. You start iedit with iedit.select().
  2. The text which will be used is word-under-cursor in normal mode, and visually selected in visual mode.
  3. Selection-mode will be started. (where you can chose which occurrences of text you want to iedit)
  4. You select which instances of text you want to iedit. (see config for keymaps)
  5. You press <esc> to exit selection-mode and start iedit-mode.
  6. You do some editing.
  7. You stop iedit-mode with iedit.stop().

Functions

  • iedit.select() - start selection for iedit; text will be word-under-cursor in normal mode and visually selected in visual mode.
  • iedit.select_all() - select all for iedit; text will be same as iedit.select()
  • iedit.stop() - stop iedit
  • iedit.toggle() - if iedit is on runs iedit.stop(), otherwise runs iedit.select()

Whenever a new selection is started, iedit.stop() is called automatically.

Setup & Config

Using iedit.setup() is not required, it just changes the config. The default config is:

{
 select={
  map={
   q={'done'},
   ['<Esc>']={'select','done'},
   ['<CR>']={'toggle'},
   n={'toggle','next'},
   p={'toggle','prev'},
   N={'next'},
   P={'prev'},
   a={'all'},
   --Mapping to use while in selection-mode
   --Possible values are:
   -- • `done` Done with selection
   -- • `next` Go to next occurrence
   -- • `prev` Go to previous occurrence
   -- • `select` Select current
   -- • `unselect` Unselect current
   -- • `toggle` Toggle current
   -- • `all` Select all
  },
  highlight={
   current='CurSearch',
   selected='Search'
  }
 },
 highlight='IncSearch',
}

Set merge=false in a (non-array) table in the config to not merge with the default config.
