Vim Follow-up So, it’s been over a month and a half since I switched back to Vim, and I figured I’d post a bit about how things are going. I love it. Though the future is notoriously difficult to foretell, I think it’s safe to say that I won’t be switching editors again anytime soon. Vim is where it’s at, for me. Here’s the combination of plugins and such that I’ve found work best for me.
I have spent a lot of time peering into a Vim window, and relatedly, a lot of time testing different configurations. These are the best non-standard options I’ve found or stolen from others over the years; listed below in order of descending usefulness — though I think everything in this article is worth skimming — is an omnium-gatherum of tips that should have value to anyone, no matter how they like to run Vim.

More Vim: Save Time With Macros - O'Reilly Mac DevCenter Bl The following is a section that we left out of this week’s Mac DevCenter article What Is Vim (It’s Easier than You Think) because of length constraints. I hope you find it useful as one more point on your radar screen as you ponder the productivity that Vim may be able to add to your daily workflow. Do you find yourself frequently whipping out the python interpreter or cooking up regular expressions in Perl just to munge some text? Even if you’re already really good, I bet Vim macros can still make you even better. A Vim macro is simply a set of keystrokes that you can record and use over again to perform repetitious tasks.
