Plugin which imposes alt-ijkl navigation shortcuts on currently open keymap. The idea is that these shortcuts are more ergonomic for navigation and editing than using keyboard arrows. Some of the shortcuts:
  • alt-i - line up
  • alt-j - move to previous word
  • alt-k - line down
  • alt-l - move to next word
  • alt-n - move left
  • alt-m - move right
  • alt-u - move to start of line
  • alt-o - move to end of line
  • alt-shift-ijklmnuo - navigate with selection
  • alt-d - delete next word
  • alt-; - delete next character
Note that in OSX you will need to configure keyboard input source without dead keys. This can be done after plugin startup in notification popup.
