VI Keybindings for Visual Studio .NET
I've been looking for an addon that will let me use VI keybindings in Visual Studio for years now.
VS .NET keybindings are completely configurable. There's no vi set built in, but there's no reason you can't do it yourself if you're patient enough.
I've been looking for the same thing for quite a while.
Maybe something extremely hackish could be done with macros. Basically you start the macro with a hotkey sequence to enter "VI Mode", and then all keys are processed by the macro. Performance would probably suck, but on a 4 ghz machine with 5TB of RAM, who's gonna notice?
Or you could just learn the keystrokes / combinations for the new IDE?
Hmmmm... I consider myself somewhat of a modern geek, but vi is in my blood and has been for so many years - it becomes second nature. A word of warning however - don't ever use the viper mode in emacs. Not because it doesn't work, but because now I save my files with esc-:q or ctlr-x ctrl-s depending upon which I think of first. I can't use vi or vim or elvis anymore - it has to be xemacs with viper.
Have you looked at VIM, www.vim.org. I know that you used to be able to plug it into older versions of Visual Studio, and use it as your editior.
I guess this means you can't hook into the keyboard interrupt handler anymore?
