VI Improved (Vim) is an improved version of the editor "vi", one of the standard text editors on UNIX systems. It has all the features you'll ever need from an editor, and probably three times that many more that you'll never use The newer versions also include a 'vimdiff' mode that you can use to diff and merge file(s). Oh, I didn't mention it's also scriptable in Python, and there's a graphical version: GVIM.
http://nvie.com/posts/how-i-boosted-my-vim/ Published: September 14, 2010 Last updated: September 23, 2010 (highlight updates) Last updated: September 23, 2010 A few weeks ago, I felt inspired by articles from Jeff Kreeftmeijer and Armin Ronacher . I took some time to configure and fine-tune my Vim environment.
For the last few months I’ve been steadily moving more towards VIM as my primary editor for Grails development. Here I’ll share some of the plugins, scripts tips and tricks that I’ve found most useful for this. I’ll assume you have some knowledge of VIM and the ability to install VIM or your system of choice. Because VIM is so customizable, and everyone is sure to have different workflows, I don’t expect anyone to follow this setup to the letter.

* index.txt * For IdeaVIM version 0.12.0. Last change: 2007 Jan 01 IdeaVIM REFERENCE MANUAL by Rick Maddy * index * This file contains a list of all commands for each mode, with a tag and a short description. The lists are sorted on ASCII value. Tip: When looking for certain functionality, use a search command. E.g., to look for deleting something, use: "/delete". 1.
Vim provides the :s (substitute) command for search and replace; this tip shows examples of how to substitute. On some systems, gvim has Find and Replace on the Edit menu ( :help :promptrepl ), however it is easier to use the :s command due to its command line history and ability to insert text (for example, the word under the cursor) into the search or replace fields. Basic search and replace
Switching between source and header files is a frequent operation, and so many ways to do it have been suggested. This article tries to list them all, and also list their advantages and disadvantages. Script a.vim Edit
Ctags is a program that generates an index (or tag) file of names found in source and header files of various programming languages . Depending on the language, functions , variables , class members, macros and so on may be indexed. These tags allow definitions to be quickly and easily located by a text editor or other utility. Alternatively, there is also an output mode that generates a cross reference file, listing information about various names found in a set of language files in human-readable form. The original Ctags was introduced in BSD Unix and was written by Ken Arnold , with Fortran support by Jim Kleckner and Pascal support by Bill Joy . [ edit ] Editors that support ctags
Linux.com has an article about five scripts that make life easy in Vim (for the author at least.) I skimmed it very rapidly to see what the author used, but none seemed too useful to me. This is why I decided to write my own top 5 list of vim scripts. BufExplorer 1 : For the longest time, I worked with Vim by editing one file, saving and exiting, editing another file, saving and exiting and so on. Working with Emacs, I learned to stay in the editor for extended periods of time and opening a lot of files.

Because I'm a vim user, it's naturally for me to use vimperator on top of Firefox. Today I posted a tip on vimperator.org that helps me use Vimperator on my MacOS system. I'm reposting that tip here. To make a long story short, try an editor setting like :set editor='bash -lc "mvim -f \$*" mvim ' or (if you prefer gvim )

I switched to Vim for editing text about 18 months ago. Here's an overview of my experience. Goodbye TextMate? About 18 months ago I made the decision to give Vim a go as my primary text editor. I had been using vi extensively for server admin work for a number of years so I wasn't a total noob. TextMate was my default editor and broadly I was happy with it but decided to give Vim a go.
