IdeaVim: Append output of an external command in Rubymine


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`:





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