There is a Vim mode for the editor in settings

@theangryepicbanana
Yes, but is buggy, the escape and mode command didn’t work

Hey! so now repl.it has an option to change ur keybinding to Vim or Emacs from the editor setting :)

I hope this will help someone in the future 🙌🏾

@HARSHBAJPAI1 It's a great feature, but escape gets you out of the editor and vim users have this habit of hitting escape multiple times.
I always need to click on the editor whenever I need to change the modes.
It'll be great if Replit can do something about this 🙏🏾

You can use vim by typing vim in the output console, you can use pretty much every command

What do you mean by "using" vim "with" repl.it

JimmyTran7

@TheDrone7 Activating VIM keybinds, so you can use "VIM" within REPLIT
