help.txt about-help.txt salza.dk ============================================================================== Background The main inspiration for Liquid is VIM. The intention is that people with VIM experience should be able to adapt quickly. I find VIM really great for editing text. Since Emacs also has its areas of superiosity, I find no reason not to get inspired by that as well. This is primarily in regards to extensibility and major modes. There are two kinds of modes. Inpsired by Emacs there are major modes which defines the behavior in a given context and to provide app-like functionality. Major modes can have built in modes, which are more like VIM modes for modal editing, like insert mode, normal mode and visual mode. Insert mode is usually targeted text entry. Whenever possible and when there are no conflicts, some Emacs and some Spacemacs keybindings are implemented. In a perfect world Emacs users would spend all the time in insert mode, while VIM users would switch back and forth between insert mode and normal mode. ============================================================================== Extra help Since a lot of funcinality is inspired by VIM, please also consult the VIM help while this project is getting mature. Of cause not all of VIM functionality has been implemented, but a lot of the basic stuff is similar. Please write me if some very fundamental feature is missing.
