One Developer’s ‘Favorite Commands from a Year of Vim’ | #vim #opensource #texteditor

We’re fans of vim, the Esc key, and keyboard controls in general. Atomic Object’s Jarek Wojciechowski wrote up his favorite commands after a year of dedicated use of vim, along with some good tips on copy/paste and other functions.

I’ve been using Vim as as my primary text editor for a little over a year now, and I’d like to share some of my favorite commands that I’ve discovered during that time. I’ll focus on sharing commands over configuration, so they can be used in any Vim environment.

  1. There is no practical reason to use mode-based text editors like vim. They had their place in history, but it is time to move on. Some people use vim for nostalgic reasons, because it “looks coo, l” or it is a sort of right of passage. Not for efficiency.

    There is research showing mode-text editing as terribly inneficient. Even nano does a better job for 80% of the editing tasks. And if you do a lot of regexps for find and replace, use sed instead. And multiple clipboards exist in other editors. No reason to type twice as many characters for the same job.

  2. “There is research showing” — link please!
