It would be nice to have the help system present in Vim when using Emacs evil-mode (:help command). I searched online and could not find a way to do this since only the native Emacs C-h help menu is available. Is there a way to do this?

You can find a vim-help-mode for that in this repo. Instead of using the :help ex-command, it provides the command (M-x) vim-help to find a subject. Within the vim help files, it provides M-x vim-help-find-tag (or C-]) for finding tags, or when you have the link-hint library installed, you can 'follow' tags by pressing o.

  • Please summarize here what that links says about vim-help-mode. Otherwise this is essentially a link-only answer. Thx.
