[Repost] Turn your vim editor into a productivity powerhouse
Editor’s note: The headline and article originally referred to the “vi editor.” It has been updated to the correct name of the editor: “vim.”
A versatile and powerful editor, vim includes a rich set of potent commands that make it a popular choice for many users. This article specifically looks at commands that are not enabled by default in vim but are nevertheless useful. The commands recommended here are expected to be set in a vim configuration file. Though it is possible to enable commands individually from each vim session, the purpose of this article is to create a highly productive environment out of the box.
