unruly worker

a ridiculously fun alternative neovim keymap for the workman keyboard layout

default setup

unruly worker default layout cheatsheet

everything enabled

unruly worker everything layout cheatsheet unruly worker plugin cheatsheet

LAYOUT PHILOSOPHY

  1. When possible, commands are positioned according to the workman layout heatmap. So frequent use will not strain your hands.
  2. When possible, commands are arranged onto a semantic key. This makes it possible for the keymap to be remembered with mnemonic phrases.
  3. When possible, keys behavior, or behavior substitute, should stay in the same position as the original-keymap, so that there is no need for experienced vim users to unlearn there years of muscle memory.

FEATURES

  • default features
    • Easily Opt-Out of specific unruly mappings
    • Navigate vim like normal using yneo
    • Close to vanilla vim motion experience

    • A status bar text generator that creates a HUD for unruly-worker's state
  • plugin support opt-in features

REGISTER PRESELECTION?

With unruly_kopy and unruly_macro when you select a register, it stays selected until you change it. This means you don't select a register for a specific motion, instead you set the yank or macro register, and then all future yank/paste or record/play actions will use the selected register until you select a new register.

INSTALL AND SETUP

  1. Install with your favorite neovim package manager
  2. Add the following lua code to your vim config
-- Use this setup config if you want to follow the keymap above
local unruly_worker = require('unruly-worker')

-- to setup with the defaults you can simply put
-- unruly_worker.setup()

-- example setup with the default settings
unruly_worker.setup({
  -- you can use the skip_list = {} to stop unruly from creating certain mappings
  -- skip_list = { "z", "Z", "<C-z>"},  skip z related mappings
  skip_list = {},
  unruly_options = {
    -- set default unruly kopy register must be [a-z] [A-Z] 0 +
    kopy_reg = "+",
    -- set default unruly macro register must be [a-z] [A-Z]
    macro_reg = "q",
    -- set default unruly seek mode, must be unruly_worker.seek_mode.(buffer|loclist|quickfix)
    seek_mode = unruly_worker.seek_mode.buffer,
    -- set unruly mark mode to global or local
    mark_mode_is_global = false
  },
  -- boosters allow you to op-in to extra keymaps
  -- or opt-out of the default keymaps if you want that for some reason
  booster = {
    default                     = true,

UNRULY BOOSTERS (disabled by default)

unruly boosters change the way that neovim typically works, they are probably not most vim users cup of tea

unruly_kopy

  • kopy and paste use the preselected register kopy_reg (default: +)
  • delete, change, substitute, and paste always use register 0
  • kopy, delete, change, and substitute share registers 1-9 to track history

kopy and paste with the kopy_reg

  • k ______________ kopy (yank)
  • K ______________ kopy line (yank line)
  • p ______________ paste kopy below
  • P ______________ paste kopy above
  • " ______________ will prompt you to select a new kopy_register
    • valid registers are: [a-z][A-X] and 0 +
    • you can press <enter> or <space> reset to the default + register

kopy prompt

the kopy prompt does not limit register selection or track history

  • <C-k> __________ prompt to kopy selected text into any register
  • <C-p> __________ prompt to paste from any register

delete, change, substitute, and paste from register 0

  • d ______________ delete
  • dd _____________ delete line
  • D ______________ delete to end of line
  • s ______________ substitute
  • S ______________ substitute line
  • x ______________ delete under cursor
  • X ______________ delete before cursor
  • c ______________ delete then enter insert mode
  • cc _____________ delete line then enter insert mode
  • C ______________ delete to end of line then enter insert mode
  • . ______________ paste register 0 below
  • , ______________ paste register 0 above

unruly_mark

The unruly idea behind marks is that you only need two marks, for everything else just use telescope. Unruly marks can be in local buffer mode or global mode, by default it will be in local mode.

  • <leader>a _____ set mark a
  • <leader>b _____ set mark b
  • <C-a> _________ goto mark a
  • <C-b> _________ goto mark b
  • m _____________ toggle between local and global mark mode
  • M _____________ clear current mark mode marks

unruly_seek

unruly seek allows you to quickly navigate through quickfix list, loclist, and currently open buffers. Seek keymaps only target one type of seekable list at a time, by default the seek type will be buffers.

  • <leader>sn _____ goto next seek item
  • <leader>sp ____ goto prev seek item
  • <leader>ss ____ goto first item in seek list (start)
  • <leader>se ____ goto last item in seek list (end)
  • <leader>sq ____ seek the quickfix list
  • <leader>sl ____ seek the loclist
  • <leader>sb ____ seek open buffers

unruly_macro

unruly macros use the preselected register macro_reg (default: z)

  • q ______________ record macro
  • Q ______________ play macro
  • <C-q> __________ select the macro register
    • valid registers: [a-z][A-Z]
  • <leader>qv _____ pretty print the current macro content (view)
  • <leader>qp _____ pretty paste the current macro content into the current buffer
  • <leader>qi _____ import select text as a macro
    • this will convert special keys in the selected text like <cr> <esc> into the register correctly
  • <leader>ql _____ toggle macro recording/import lock
    • this is useful if you want to make sure you don't accidentally overwrite the current macro register

unruly_quit

this is maby a bad idea, but I love it

  • z _____________ write all buffers, and print a random emoticon (:wall)
    • the random emoticon is useful as visual feedback that the write occurred (づ ◕‿◕ )づ
  • Z _____________ write the current buffer
  • <C-z> _________ prompt to quit (y for yes, f for force quit)

plugin_navigator

depends on Navigator.nvim

  • <c-y> focus left (vim or terminal multiplexer)
  • <c-n> focus down (vim or terminal multiplexer)
  • <c-e> focus up (vim or terminal multiplexer)

ABOUT

Being dyslexic has taught me its often easier for me to build a system for myself than it is to learn a system that works well for everyone else. This reinventing the wheel usually ends up being a bit of an accident. I usually start off trying to learn something the way it is, but when I struggle to grasp whats going on I inevitably decide to dig in and see how things work under the hood. My process for exploring the "under the hood of a thing" is kind of caveman style, I just poke and prod and modify and delete things until I have a feeling for what does what. By the time I'm done with all that I usually have my own opinions about what things should be like, and I decide its time to reinvent the wheel or at least swap out the tires. I think the creation of this keymap is a good example of how my learning style tends to unfold.

Unrelated to vim, I decided to learn the workman layout in an attempt to address issues I was having with typing causing pain. This decision forced me to consider how to remap a few vim keybinds, but one thing lead to another and eventually I had created an entirely new layout, the unruly-worker layout. The original process of creating this keymap lead to me spending about a year reading :help and scouring the internet for vim config gems. Which probably seems ridiculous for many people, but for me its just how I've had to do most things in life. The time felt well used because I had already spent a decade writing code and I don't plan to stop for many decades to come. Unlike my first 7 years struggling with vim, I can now remember the entire keymap well enough to experience the sensation of manipulating text without noticing that my hands, or keyboard keys, or even that vim itself has anything to do with it. I always felt vim was the right tool for job, unruly-worker is just a jig that makes the tool fit perfectly into my workflow.

Dyslexia may or may not have been what made it so hard for me to learn vim, but it has normalized the process of reinventing wheels as a way to learn for me. The unruly-worker layout, is a classic example of the type of outcomes that my somewhat accidental process of learning produces. unruly-worker is a tool that may not be useful for anyone else, but it makes a tool that is useful to many other people accessible to me.
