I am currently trying to get into kakoune. Even though it is built with influence from vim, but it is not vi descendant in any way or form. Are questions regarding kakoune allowed here?

    I'd say no, as it's pretty different from vi. Also see What is considered to be vi?. Commented Mar 16, 2019 at 9:06

    @MartinTournoij based on my understanding of kakounr and the linked answer, I agree—Kakoune doesnt support the posix subset of vi(m), even though it’s paradigm is vi-influenced

  • I do agree too. This page shows that a lot of things work differently in Kakoune which makes it pretty much off topic.
