Evil

Evil is an extensible vi layer for Emacs. It provides Vim features like Visual selection and text objects, and is the successor to the now defunct vimpulse and vim-mode.

Quick install

Using el-get, Evil can be downloaded and installed with: M-x el-get-install RET evil RET.

Download

Alternatively, Evil lives in a Git repository. To download Evil, do:

git clone git://gitorious.org/evil/evil.git

If you don't have Git, just head over to Gitorious and click the "Download master as tar.gz" link (extract with ##tar -xzf master.tar.gz##).

Install

Move Evil to ~/.emacs.d/evil (or somewhere else in your ##load-path##). Then add the following lines to ~/.emacs:

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/evil")
(require 'evil)
(evil-mode 1)


Evil requires [UndoTree undo-tree.el] in the load-path for linear undo and undo branches. Otherwise, Evil uses regular Emacs undo.

Documentation

A brief PDF manual is available in the /doc subdirectory.
