evil-mode does not seem to bind keys in the minibuffer. Is there a way to use evil in the minibuffer? It's hard to use Vim-style keybindings everywhere BUT the minibuffer.

  • The closest thing I know to doing this is if you want to just use vim-style keybindings to edit :ex commands (ie. those that you type after typing :). You can do that by using the q: command. Even if it doesn't quite do what you want, it's super useful and well worth learning.

PR #1059 implemented this. Turn it on like this:

(setq evil-want-minibuffer t)

Watch out not to become too evil! :D
