I am using Spacemacs in Vim mode, and I would like to be able to insert a single character while remaining in normal mode, as described here for Vim.
For example, typing
SPC i k in normal mode would insert k where the cursor stands, while
SPC a k would insert k on the right of the cursor; exactly the same as pressing
i k <ESC> and
a k <ESC> l (the
l aiming at putting the cursor back where it was) respectively.
P.S.: Making the command repeatable through
. and allowing for multiple repetitions as in
5 i k would be much appreciated!
