Hello OnlyOffice Community,
I hope all of you are doing great. My name is Gregory and I am a student in Computer Science and for some time I wanted to be involved in contributing to open source projects. Recently, I’ve been exploring the idea of creating a VIM-like plugin for OnlyOffice. I believe this addition could offer an alternative editing experience to users who are accustomed to VIM’s powerful and efficient text editing capabilities.
Before I dive into this project, I’d like to gather your input and insights to ensure that this is a direction the community and developers are interested in pursuing.
So first and foremost I would like to ask if you believe that a VIM-like plugin for OnlyOffice would be a valuable and interesting addition to the editor.
If yes, are there any existing efforts or projects related to VIM-like functionality in OnlyOffice that I should be aware of? I searched in the forum but I could not find something related.
If this idea gains support, could you provide technical guidance or information about the plugin development process and any specific APIs or hooks that can be leveraged for this purpose?
Of course anyone who is on board with this idea/project can provide insight and suggestions on if and how this plugin can be created.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in this thread, and let’s start a conversation about the possibility of integrating VIM-like functionality into OnlyOffice.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
