It’s been nearly a week since I started with venturing into
Vim and so far it’s really been an adventure for sure.
I’ve managed to pick up a few new tricks everyday and yesterday I had to stop
myself from saving a quick note I was jotting down in another editor with
:w1 which I guess is a good thing. I’ve also managed to scrap
together a decent
.vimrc file with lots of settings and installed quite a few
plugins as well. I feel that using Vim makes me atleast feel a bit more
efficient and while the learning curve is steep I do think that I’ll continue to
use it. I’ve always been lazy when it comes to learning keyboard shortcuts and
even though I think that you should use whatever feels most comfortable to you
it’s defintively not a bad thing to be able to move around and edit things fast
without having to use the mouse.
I’ve also started a new project2 and decided that I’ll only work on it in Vim just to get a good feel for it and to learn how to actually use all the basic ways to get by atleast. That’ll probably prove to be a challenge, but fun nonetheless. I have a lot to learn but I’m equally eager to do that.
