I'm pretty psyched by vim-mode-plus so I don't have much interest in testing vim-mode patches anymore. We tested and stabilized a bunch of patches. thanks to everyone that helped out and filed issues.
First, disable vim-mode and restart Atom. vim-mode and vim-mode-next are, unsurprisingly, incompatible.
Then, install vim-mode-next as you would any other Atom package.
These pull requests are merged but not in vim-mode yet.
These are not merged because they're not ready but, oh, how I wish they were.
Finally, these may never be merged.
Consider installing these packages to provide even more Vim finger-feel:
Why restrict your vim-mode experience to the text buffer?
knavigate the fuzzy finder and search results
The ready branch is where the action is. It contains the the raw pull requests and conflict resolutions.
The master branch includes the latest ready branch plus additional commits specific to vim-mode-next (like this README). Unlike every other git repository out there, the master branch is completely uninteresting.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
