Welcome to Vim

21 Jul 2010

This is a Vim Introduction to be watched by those looking to start using Vim or are curious about what it can do, or whatever… You don’t necessarily “learn” anything here except that Vim is amazing and you get to learn my personal take on it :)

Roughly half-hour long hands on video exploring Vim and what you can get up to in terms of customising and exploiting the environment. Can’t seem to break the visual editor habit personally, Textmate is beginning to show age in some places though, having not been significantly updated for several years.1

  1. I regularly run into a bug whereby the default path is set to / is quite annoying, and doesn’t seem to have been fixed despite being reported in September 2009 as a consequence of the Snow Leopard upgrade.
