Announcing Vim Keybindings for Squad!

After talking with many dedicated vim users, it became clear that vim compatibility was a vital feature for Squad. Fortunately, Code Mirror made it relatively easy to add vim keybindings within Squad.

To turn on vim mode, open the “Edit” menu in Squad, and scroll over the “Key Bindings” item. There, select “Vim” and you’ll be ready to go. Note that selecting vim mode in your workspace won’t affect the keybindings for anyone who joins you in the workspace; every participant can choose vim or normal keybindings.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Feel free to drop us an email at or tweet @squadedit to let us know what you think.
