- by pelle, 10 months agoRated 5 out of 5Unbelievably, it actually works: vim (with local settings and plugins) in Firefox!
Seems to run fine alongside Vimium, after setting a keybinding to unfocus vim (however text box navigation labels seem to be hidden behind Firenvim). Works perfect on Hacker News but needs a bit of tweaking to play well with web apps like Mattermost.

Developer responseposted a year agoFirenvim not taking over input fields is done on purpose. You can add input fields to the list of elements Firenvim should take over by changing the 'selector' setting: https://github.com/glacambre/firenvim#configuring-what-elements-firenvim-should-appear-on .

- by Sapo, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5I always wanted to edit the web with neovim. This extension works with almost everything, included overleaf, mails, drive and so on. And you can use your own init.vim. My preferred extension now on!
- by Caleb Maclennan, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5After so many years of wanting this, it's actually happening! I've used so many poor-man attempts at this that try to emulate vim like keys in the browser or shuffle data off to an external editor window. This is different! This is a full blown real instance of Neovim being run with my usual init.rc configuration and all my plugins ... overlayed on text areas.
Yes it has some rough edges (don't hit CTRL-W in an editor!) and not all sites work seamlessly yet, but this is clearly a step beyond all previous attempts at something like this.
