Over two years I’ve been using VIM as the main development tool. From plugin for Visual Studio to complete IDE for JS and Go projects. In this post, I’m going to level up your VIM experience by sharing my best practices, most used hotkeys and awesome plugins. If you are interested in then welcome into my VIM-world. But if don’t know what the hell it is or you don’t have enough confidence when using VIM, I recommend you to read the set of articles about VIM for beginners (one, two, three).
This is the last post about VIM for beginners. You are on the way to become a VIM master. As you may found, this is not so easy to learn VIM and this is also talking about previous posts (part 1 and part 2). When you feel the power in your hands using VIM, you will want something more and this is what this post about. We’ll speak about some useful things you have to know before you can go by yourself. All topics will be discovered superficially in order to let you decide what you want.
Ok, you read the previous post and decided to learn VIM and this is awesome. Let’s make sure you are doing it right. Your fingers got used to
hjkl navigation and you also know how to change modes from one to another. If it is true, so you are ready.
In this post we will speak about VIM language and consider some of VIM modes deeper.
As any developer, you are constantly developing. You are learning new technologies by reading books, watching online lessons, attending some courses, and so on and so forth. You know that if you stop learning, you become uncompetitive. But have you ever thought about your performance? How do you improve that? If you don’t know how to answer than welcome under the cut.
