    • Vim Notes James Cox, smokeclouds Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Starting with Vim Get it at http://code.google.com/p/macvim/ Clone someone’s vim dot les. Mine: https://github.com/imajes/vim les Sam’s: https://github.com/idoru/idoru-vim-con g Install Macvim cli helpers. Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Vim is modal Insert (for typing) Normal (editing, moving, changing text/structure) Visual (selecting text) Command (running commands. duh.) Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Key Mode Operators Bare letters to change mode (e.g. i for insert) Backslash to execute searches Forward slash for leader (default, can be remapped) Colon for commands (e.g. :wq for save, quit) Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Basic Navigation h,l,k,j (left, right, up line, down line) ^ - rst character (or, ctrl-a on OS X) $ - last character (or, ctrl-e on OS X) cursor keys. (ignore the purists) G, <n>G (go to line, go to numbered line) Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Opening Files vim <path/to/ le> - open a le :tabe <path/to/ le> - to open a le in a tab :split <path/to/ le> - open a le and split with the current :vsplit <path/to/ le> - open a le and vertical split with current Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Writing (Saving) files :w (existing) :w <path/to/save> (new) :w! forces it Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Quitting The Buffer :q - quit :q! - force quit. :) Usual behavior: :wq Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Fun Stuff :ct <char> - Cut to character, also: :yt, :dt :%s/a/b/ - Buffer search and replace :noh - remove highlights which are annoying gt/gT - move between tabs Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Fun stuff 2: my .vimrc.local https://github.com/imajes/vim les/blob/ master/.vimrc.local Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Plugins: Gist Source - http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php? script_id=2423 (drop this in your plugins dir) Be careful of settings: let g:gist_clip_command = 'pbcopy' let g:gist_open_browser_after_post = 1 let g:gist_detect_ letype = 1 Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Plugins: Endwise Tim Pope’s - https://github.com/tpope/vim-endwise ‘Wisely’ adds an ‘end’ where appropriate Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Plugins: Fugitive Tim Pope - https://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive Git wrapper. Git activities in hackable buffers = awesome Fave tool: :Gblame Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Plugins: Rails Oh, Tim Pope. https://github.com/tpope/vim-fugitive Where might one begin? Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Pairing with vim Vim is a serious text editor. In the way that Schubert has a serious movember ‘tache. Pairing is ne, but I think it makes sense to only have one driver at a time - it’s hard to ‘share’ typing. A common env is not impossible but it’s de nitely ‘personal’ - fortunately it’s easy to switch ~/.vim Tuesday, November 23, 2010
    • Pontifications Vim is easy enough to learn if you’re willing to spend two weeks looking at a cheat sheet or bugging someone - or pair with someone. Textmate hasn’t changed signi cantly in forever, we all know it’s failings. Old and creaky. Rubymine takes 6 weeks to boot. Emacs. sigh, Godwin’s law, you win. Tuesday, November 23, 2010
