Calling all Vim/Vi users/fans
« on: Mon, 07 January 2013, 21:04:42 »
Just curious, how many GH'ers are vim/vi fans?? It seems to me that a passion for keyboard and the power of vim go hand in hand.

With vim/gVim as my personal editor of choice, the vimium chrome extension, and the VsVim VisualStudio extension for work, I have almost all of the bases covered.
GH just needs to implement vim keymapping to the post editor :P


Also, to facilitate more interesting discussion, what colorscheme/font do you prefer in a non-terminal setting? I'm a big fan of Solarized (Dark) and Anonymous Pro (11pt)

i use vi. i wouldn't say i'm a fan as much as i am more experienced with it than other text editors, and it comes bundled more often than any other editor. i use kate if i'm mostly working in a DE otherwise vim does the job on terminal/simple WM type environments.
the low contrast of solarized sort of messes with my eyes for some reason, whether it's light or dark. i like white or amber/yellow on black. liberation mono does an okay job. terminus is cool too but i don't remember how 'different' certain glyphs are ( for example O/0, l/I/|).

I tend to use Sublime 2 with Vintage (standard vim key bindings) enabled. I'm not really sure why, but I saw a lot of people recommend it so I decided to try it and I like the intuitive multidocument interface.

gvim/vim fan here as well.

I use the exact same configuration in gvim as I do with vim.
ie. my gvim looks and feels exactly like the standard vim does when open in a terminal emulator.

Solarized looks nice though. Perhaps I should try something new.

Now that you mention it, I really don't like how low the contrast is for commented code.. I was using desert in gVim for a while before that which I liked.

It's nice to have the same scheme across the board though, and I found an excellent solarized scheme for VS.

I really like the simplicity of white on black, I just  have a hard time looking at it for long periods of time.

Whoa, this looks interesting.
The "project" interface looks like it might be a good middleground between eclipse and gvim.
There are a few things that I can hopefully reconfigure, but the configuration model looks like extensible, so I am hopeful it will support it.

EDIT: Does sublime text have an IRC channel?

I am elvis fan (another vi clone).  Because it has better indentation control and something else that eludes me for the moment.

I usually use PuTTY to access various GNU/Linux boxen, and a solarized-like colour theme works well for me.

I tried Sublime Text 2 on my quest for a cross-platform syntax-highlighting text editor, but more or less dropped it for a few reasons, including the clunky configuration (call me lazy, but it seems half way between a GUI config editor and a flat text file).  Also find/replace works weird and less flexible, IMHO, compared to a few other editors I have been using.

Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I've tried various other editors, including emacs, but I always come back to vim.  vi command emulation in other editors has always been missing something or other that I use constantly.

My font is Consolas, and I have a script that chooses a random colorscheme at every invocation.  Solarized is too washed out for me.  asmdev2 and candycode spring to mind as schemes I like a lot.

Here's a question for the rest of you: do you open many vim instances as you move from file to file, or do have one vim with lots of buffers open?

(Responding as an elvis user) depending on what I am doing, usually I just have one terminal window open to the server I am working on, in which case multiple buffers in one elvis instance.

Multiple buffers, all the way. I've been tweaking my vim installation for the last 5 years. I'm absolutely lost on default vim installations :(

I use vim, I actually have it set up with plugins to let me emulate Source Insight, even helped a bit with a plugin to duplicate the context window (Click on any keyword, a small buffer in the bottom automatically opens the definition and displays it).

Now if only they had those vim keycaps for Topre too.

Oooh that's cool.  I use Sublime 2 more than I do vim because I'm a lot faster in it.   I use it with iTerm and split panes when I do fiddle with VIM.  I don't really know how to Tmux.

Vim is the ultimate.  I don't care for gvim, though.  Takes me out of my comfy terminal and it feels like it starts up too slowly.  Those milliseconds count!  If they didn't I'd be using xemacs in viper mode again, like I did when I was new to the world of text editors.

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I've always said that the one thing keeping me in Vim (as opposed to another editor with vim bindings) is the lack of support for vim-surround.

Whelp, looks like I'm giving Atom a try, since it has vim bindings and a vim-surround plugin. Will report back after a bit.

I mostly use vi for work, when I need to edit configurations on linux machines. I'm still very fresh on it, and it still cramps my brain, but i'm improving slowly. Still, I prefer text editor, mainly notepad++ / Scite. But in time that may change.

vim is exactly the text editor.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

Vim user for about five years here. I just converted from using pathogen to Vundle, and I'm a big fan of almost any plugin that tpope writes. I haven't started writing any plugins, and probably won't for a long time, mostly because I have found everything I need in the plethora of existing plugins.

I will say that the 'Learning Vi/Vim' book, as well as the 'sed/awk' book by O'Reilly can really help with learning the editor, as well as regex, which can help quite a bit when searching in files with Vim.

I have never used ViEmu, but certainly enjoy VsVim for Visual Studio code editing.

Ever since I read http://stevelosh.com/blog/2010/09/coming-home-to-vim/, I have been using the 'molokai' color scheme, found at http://bitbucket.org/sjl/dotfiles/src/tip/vim/colors/molokai.vim

Im a recent convert honestly, but after getting over the wall of pain getting used to vim i like it more every day.  I am building my own 60% keyboard with keycaps around vim.  Im also trying to gauge interest in another marketplace ic thread i created.  Shameless plus, sorry, but you guys might want to go check it out. :)

I use Emacs. I'm now seriously considering 'switching' to VI. By switching I mean using evil mode inside emacs (vi keystrokes). The chording is hurting my hands, and probably slowing my already slow typing down.

Both are great editors or they wouldn't have lasted 30+ years, they will likely be the only two editors that currently exist that will be relevant in another 30 years.

I use Dvorak, and I've messed around with vim a couple of times. Unfortunately it's a lot less intuitive with the dvorak keyboard, but it seems like it could be just as effective.
