When I upgraded my
IPython version to 5 and one thing that I’m missing is
vi mode binding. When I read the changelog, they now replace
prompt_toolkit a pure python interactive command line prompt. This is very nice because it supports all platform that Python supports.
So to bring back your vi binding, you need to do some few changes.
ipython profile create
This will create a default profile where you can change your IPython configuration.
Edit this file
Uncomment this line
c.TerminalInteractiveShell.editing_mode = 'vi'
IPython, you now have you
vi binding back.
