    I'm still on original Vim because of various gVim features not yet satisfactorily replicated in any Neovim frontend I'm aware of, but I use ALE for any kind of static analysis not covered by something like coc.nvim and configuring the backends I wanted was a simple as:

    :star: Vim for Visual Studio Code (by VSCodeVim)

    Project mention: Coming Home to Vim | | 2022-10-23

    Are you familiar with vim q macros? It's a similar thing but you don't need to use maps/remaps to use them: q to start recording and q (in normal mode, so q sometimes) to stop recording. Then you can rerun the macro with @ (or @@ is rerun the last macro). (Even fun things like @ work to rerun the macro a number of times.)

    VSCodeVim seems to support q-macros just fine. The lone silly missing bit is that VSCodeVim makes it slightly tougher to save/reuse q-macros than proper Vim [1]. In Vim those letters are the exact same "registers" as copy/paste so that you can record a macro to register 'a' with `qa…q` and then if you want to save that macro for later you can just paste it into a document somewhere `"a` (paste register a) and pull the macro back in with the right motion and yank to the register you want (`ya`). VSCodeVim unfortunately uses separate registers for now and it is a bit more work to save/restore q-macros.
