How can I use Vim key bindings in Mathematica Wolfram Notebook?

I'm sorry I have not found suitable tags from the existing ones.

    $\begingroup$ What sort of bindings do you want? The systems are fundamentally different, of course, but for most core things there are keyboard shortcuts. Also I'd encourage you to read up on Mathematica the language, notebooks if you haven't already. Mathematica is a very different language from the standard 4 (C++, Java, Python, JavaScript) and you will save yourself a lot of confusion, write better code, and be able to do more faster if you do yourself that favor. $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Aug 1 '17 at 20:49
  • $\begingroup$ I want to edit mathematic notebook in the Vim way, Just the editing. Like 'w' for moving word by word and instead of using the mouse, and so on. I used many environment that allow me to edit text in Vim or Emacs key bindings. I wonder if there is something like that in Mathematica. $\endgroup$ – TahaMagdy Aug 2 '17 at 19:19
  • $\begingroup$ I'm afraid that doesn't really answer the question. What aspects of Vim do you want? If you're writing development code you can write it in Vim if that's easiest for you. If you're not, then Vim and a notebook are entirely different environments and the question of what about Vim you want in a notebook stands. $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Aug 2 '17 at 19:23
  • $\begingroup$ I don't want to edit mathematica in Vim. But I mean the way you move around the text. In Mathematica you can only move around the text only by the mouse or the arrows in the keyboard and this is the case in many editing environment. But there are other way to move around the text without the use of the mouse. And here is an example of what I want. youtube.com/watch?v=ZbBkVWRoKQs $\endgroup$ – TahaMagdy Aug 2 '17 at 19:34
  • $\begingroup$ What sort of motions? You can do Ctrl+Arrow_Key to jump around in text, Ctrl-' to close a cell group, etc. Look at this. $\endgroup$ – b3m2a1 Aug 2 '17 at 19:40
