I'd been using Sublime for a long time and recently switched over to Vim. It look me about a full week to learn enough to use it daily for work. The Vim Learning Curve is a Myth I’ve been speaking about and teaching people vim for several years now, and I’ve noticed a surprising pattern: people are literally afraid of learning the editor. Over the years, the popular mythology around vim has become that it’s insanely difficult to learn; a task to be attempted by only those with the thickest of neck-beards. I’ve heard dozens of times from folks who are convinced it will take them months to reach proficiency. These beliefs are false. Here’s what’s true:
JSbin, JSfiddle or Codepen, which one to use and why? There are lots of css – js playgrounds now in the market, and the most popular ones are JSbin (by Remy Sharp), JSfiddle (by Oskar Krawczyk), codepen (by Chris Coyier, Tim Sabat and Alex Vasquez). So sometimes it become a confusing question which one to use; and more importantly why and when? Let’s compare these three today and find out which one can be the most suitable one for you. So, first of all let’s compare the features of these three. Feature comparison table These are the main features provided by these three playgrounds.
Why, oh WHY, do those #?@! nutheads use vi? The VI Gang Sign by Jon Beltran de Heredia, May 16th, 2007 Yes, even if you can't believe it, there are a lot fans of the 30-years-old vi editor (or its more recent, just-15-years-old, best clone & great improvement, vim). No, they are not dinosaurs who don't want to catch up with the times - the community of vi users just keeps growing: myself, I only got started 2 years ago (after over 10 years of being a professional programmer). Friends of mine are converting today. Style Guide for Python Code Code should be written in a way that does not disadvantage other implementations of Python (PyPy, Jython, IronPython, Cython, Psyco, and such). For example, do not rely on CPython's efficient implementation of in-place string concatenation for statements in the form a += b or a = a + b . This optimization is fragile even in CPython (it only works for some types) and isn't present at all in implementations that don't use refcounting. In performance sensitive parts of the library, the ''.join() form should be used instead.
Development Environments - Full Stack Python A development environment is a combination of a text editor and the Python interpreter. The text editor allows you to write the code. The interpreter provides a way to execute the code you've written. A text editor can be as simple as Notepad on Windows or more complicated as a complete integrated development environment (IDE) such as PyCharm which runs on any major operating system. Learn Vim Progressively tl;dr: You want to teach yourself vim (the best text editor known to human kind) in the fastest way possible. This is my way of doing it. You start by learning the minimal to survive, then you integrate all the tricks slowly. Vim the Six Billion Dollar editor Better, Stronger, Faster. Learn vim and it will be your last text editor.

(welcome) 5 Essential VIM Plugins That Greatly Increase my Productivity There are a lot of VIM plugins to choose from. An individual’s list of what would be considered “essential” is largely a personal matter. For any given plugin, there is also probably going to be an excellent alternative plugin that does the same basic thing in a slightly different way. I’m just starting to use VIM for more than just quick edits of files on a server, and the plugins below are solving very specific workflow issues that I’ve encountered while learning to be productive in VIM. warning: watch out for plugins, generally. For many (some included in my list of favorites here) might hamper your ability to understand the core functionality of VIM.
[PYTHON3] Dive Into Python 3 You are here: • Dive Into Python 3 Dive Into Python 3 covers Python 3 and its differences from Python 2. Compared to Dive Into Python, it’s about 20% revised and 80% new material. The book is now complete, but feedback is always welcome. [vim] Simple calculator in vim Need a simple calculator during editing a file using vim and don’t want to click away from it? Then first add the following to your ~/.vimrc: imap <silent><C-C><C-R>=string(eval(input("Calculate: ")))<CR> In order to use the calculator while you are editing some file using vim, hit CTRL-C in the insert mode and then enter what you want to calculate (e.g., 2+3 or 4.5*7.9). (It) first calls the built-in input() function to request the user to type in their calculation, which input() then returns as a string. That input string is then passed to the built-in eval(), which evaluates it as a Vimscript expression and returns the result.
