- by Firefox user 5635492, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5This is the best replacement for vimperator on firefox quantum, thank you for this great extension.
But I'm wondering how can I review all of my settings like editing vimperatorrc or vimrc?
For instance, after several search keywords set with `searchsetkeyword`, I'd like to have access to a list of all these keywords, and also quickmarks.
I don't know if this function is already included or not since I haven't find instructions in documents.
Thank you again for tridactyl.
- by Firefox user 13605130, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Right now the best Vimperator successor for me. It provides minimal features like open, sarch, tabbing shortcutting etc.
What it still lacks is:
* great vim-like search
But it's a work in progress so I've high expectations.
What's unfortunate you can't use addons on mozzilla pages, so i.e. you will still need to ctrl+w to exit about:addons instead of your bind.
- by Firefox user 13600021, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Still a bit rough around the edges but I'm looking forward to future progress.
Thank you to the authors of this extension, your hard work is much appreciated!
- by wkalt, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This add-on is amazing! If you're depressed about Vimperator dying and have previously found comparable WebExtensions add-ons lacking, you have got to try it out. For me it's extra transformative because it means I can use the latest Firefox now!
Thank you to the authors!
- by Firefox user 12812226, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Thanks to the developers for their great work. After Vimperator stopped working using Firefox was quite uncomfortable, but this plugin does a good job filling the gaps and from update to update it's getting better. Keep it up!
- by Firefox user 13569153, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5This extension shows a lot of promise, and is currently the best webextension-based vim extension there is (of which I've used vimium, vim-vixen, and saka-key). I really like how easy it is rebind keys and use a "command mode" just like real vim. The developers of this extension update and improve things on a regular basis. There are some problems however:
- inability to change or disable the ugly new-tab page
- hint mode misses a few links on some websites
- ability to disable the extension on some websites (ignore mode is only temporary)
- ability to change the search engine when using the "open" command
- vim-like searching using /, ?, and n/N
- (probably an issue with webextensions) won't work on about: pages and addon pages
Even with the above issues, this extension is still very good and stable. I wish the developers luck in working around the limitations of webextensions API.Thanks for your kind words and feedback!
A couple of your issues have already been resolved at least partially:
You can change the default search engine with `set searchengine [keyword]` and add new search keywords with `searchsetkeyword [keyword] [url]`.
You can change the newtab page (at least, the one navigated to with `*open`) with `set newtab [url]`.
This does expose another issue, though: our documentation isn't very good yet.
- by Firefox user 13554175, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Looks promising, but can't figure out how to disable it for specific domains, so it's unusable for me at the moment.Hi, thanks for your feedback.
You can press `I` to get into ignore mode and to leave it.
We don't yet have any per domain settings, but we have just finished the user configuration back end that was blocking it, so it should come soon. Check back in a few days or a week!
- by Firefox user 13508785, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5It's still lagging much behind now "legacy" plugins such as vimperator or pentadactyl, but it's not only the best vim-like plugin there currently is, but it's also pretty good already.
- by matbur, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Addon is not working on few pages i.e. https://addons.mozilla.org or about:home. I've updated FF to ver. 57 and I hoped that there will be some good replacements for my favorite vimFx. I also don't like Tridactyl New Tab Page. I cannot find the shortcut for closing current tab.
I hope that when this addon will be better I change my rating.Thanks for your feedback. WebExtensions can't inject code onto addons.mozilla.org or pages with certain schemas. This is documented on the new-tab page, help page and on the readme :)
The new-tab page is a bit rubbish. We hope to change it soon.
The bind for closing a tab is `d`.
- by Firefox user 13438236, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Just upgraded to Firefox 58 and found that Vimperator no longer works :(
As I used to be a Pentadactyl user I decided to try Tridactyl. So far it behaves like a developing version of Pentadactyl and although its missing a few things, its pretty much intuitive. No manual needed so far.
So thanks. Nice start and works well with the new super-fast Firefox.
