  • Vim sneak breaks comma mapped as leader key.
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/vim | 11 Aug 2022
    I've mapped my leader key to the comma for its ease of use, but I've noticed that this breaks vim sneak. Is there anything I can do to get around this, or am I stuck with having to remap sneak.

  • Sneak vs Hop and Why?
    6 projects | reddit.com/r/neovim | 25 Jun 2022
    Basically over the past view weeks, I've been trying out different plugins to see what works best for me and what'll help make Neovim even more capable of completing with other mouse oriented editors. I feel that plugins such as Sneak and Hop(and also EasyMotion, but that's not apart of my question). Which is better in your opinion? Also make sure to explain your decision.
  • nvim-headtracker: a plugin for moving the cursor with a vive tracker attached to your head

    This is a plugin I've been working on for a while now as a hobby project. I wanted a faster and more accurate way to make large cursor jumps across the screen. vim-sneak is what I used for a while, but even that I found occasionally annoying.
  • Why not use Evil in 2022?

    Sure, you have plugins like Sneak in Vim, but this is just a "diet" version of searching to navigate in my opinion.

    There's also vim-sneak which I use exactly like you've described: I know I need to go to "fu," and that's where it takes me, and a) there's less mental overhead because it's easier to focus on the beginnings of words and b) it lands on the start of the word in this case. The latter may not be as big of a deal because we all know that in vim, as long as you're inside a word, you can do whatever you want, but then consider you can target something in the middle of a word exactly, too.
  • Neo(Vim) on Steroids: vim-sneak + easymotion = hop.nvim
    3 projects | dev.to | 16 Mar 2022
    vim-sneak, on the other hand, is also used for navigating your buffer. But instead of relying on marking texts with a keystroke like easymotion, it takes 1-2 characters as an input and marks the text that contains those input characters. As seen below. Github
  • Why does t not move the cursor when the command is repeated?

    I'm more partial to two-character searches alà vim-sneak.
  • Highlighting chars with FfTt?
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/vim | 10 Feb 2022
    vim-extended-ft seems to be able to do it, and I know vim-sneak can, although it's a little more complicated. Personally, I use quick-scope which does something related, but not quite the same: For each word on the current line, it highlights a letter in that word that would let f or F get to that word as quickly as possible.
