Key Bindings



Jumpy preferences

( Preferences cmd+, ) -> search for ‘jumpy’

Jumpy settings


Jumpy example

(image after settings set to .85 font size, high contrast, and default camel case matching pattern)

Put this override in your ‘Atom’ -> ‘Open Your Keymap’ settings:

    'f': 'jumpy:toggle'

This will bind ‘f’ to toggle Jumpy.

This is not the default because it changes vim’s native behavior. Instead, with Jumpy, after jumping to the nearest word, you can easily word or character jump over to your target. The Vimium chrome extension chose this binding. Please let me know what you think about this binding for Jumpy here!

Jumpy Styles

Note: Styles can be overridden in ‘Atom’ -> ‘Open Your Stylesheet’ (see examples below)

less atom-text-editor { .jumpy-label { // Regular labels background-color: black; color: white; &.high-contrast { // High Contrast labels (activated in settings) background-color: green; } } }

My other Atom package :)
