I'm looking for a LaTeX IDE which has
Vi plugin, but I haven't found any. I tried out
vim-latex, but I couldn't find a way to install it. Thanks in advance.
vim mode, as it uses kate as the editing component. It can be set under
Settings/Editing/Editor/Vi input mode.
It does not support all
vim features, but I found it good enough for what I needed (i.e. usual way to type/search/copy/move/...)
There's something ugly and clunky-seeming about Kile to me, at least on Ubuntu where I'm using it. The colour schemes come out wrong, there's a horrible sound each time a notification pops up. I'm sticking with TexStudio, hang the Vi keybindings. May 13, 2015 at 14:08
Do not forget to change Input Mode to "Vi Input Mode" in Settings->Editor->Editing-General under Input Mode Oct 27, 2020 at 9:37
Here's how I installed the vim latex-suite on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install vim-latexsuite sudo vim-addons -w install latex-suite
You can now edit LaTeX documents in Visual Studio Code using the LaTeX Workshop extension.
When combined with the Vim extension, you can edit LaTeX documents using Vim, alongside all the other perks of VS Code.
There is also another option. Emacs with plugins evil and auctex. With this combination you can get all main features to edit latex documents with vim key-bindings
vim-latexsuite, there also is the smaller, but nice
latex-boxplugin for vim.
