Who am I? ● Brian Racer ● http://brianracer.com ● @anveo ● http://github.com/anveo/dotfilesI have been using vim on a daily basis for about 5 years
Learn VIM Incrementally● start slow● use a few ideas at a time until you have committed them to muscle memory or internalized them
Should I use the Terminal or gVim/MacVim? ● I prefer the GUI clients ● Nicer colors ● No terminal binding clashes ● MacVim has a nice fullscreen mode ● However, I want GUI vim to *look* like a terminal window ○ remove all the chrome
Example of superior GUI color● colorcolumn● line overflow
My FAVORITE Tip!Swap your Caps Lock and Esc keys! ● you never use your caps lock key ● useful outside of vim!
Remap Spacebar● apparently I have weak pinkies and strain my wrists trying to make a colon noremap <Space> :
