vim-ruby-refactoring – Rename Instance Variable

31 December, 2010

This post is part of a series which documents the vim-ruby-refactoring plugin.

IMPORTANT: As well as installing the vim-ruby-refactoring plugin, you must also install the matchit.vim plugin for this refactoring to work.

Rename Instance Variable

Renames the selected instance variable.


Before refactoring:
Visually select the instance variable you wish to rename
Hit your <leader-key> then type rriv
You will now see a prompt to enter the new variable name: 
Rename to: new_name

After refactoring:
The instance variable @name has been renamed to @new_name in both locations within the class.

rriv is the default binding for this refactoring, think Refactor Rename Instance Variable.
