IdeaVim: Append output of an external command in Rubymine

Answered

In Vim, running `:0read !date` inserts the current date on the current line.

Is there anyway we can make this work in idea vim ?

In IdeaVim `:read` is not supported yet. You can achieve the same results by selecting the current line in the visual mode and then invoking `!date`:

 

Say your caret is on the second line before `bar`:

 

foo

<caret>bar

 

You press `V` followed by `:!date` followed by <Enter>.
