Vim Keycaps
« on: Sat, 14 November 2015, 22:18:29 »
Hello,

I've been working on some Vim keycaps, as seen here, and I am selling the extras to help fund the experiment. I have the SP caps lock replacements (1.75u) you may have seen on SP's store in the past, but I also had some custom HJKL keys made in the style of the ADM-3A terminal, which is the basis of the Vim HJKL navigation.

Everything is available in SA and DSA, and can be purchased at vimcaps.com.

The HJKL keys are $10, the Caps Lock replacement is $6, and both together is $15.

Thanks for looking.

Very cool, probably in for a set once I decide what I'll put them on. Don't suppose there is any chance of a DCS run?

I would like to have these in every profile, but I'm not sure I will make my money back on this first trial run. If I can make it work, I will add DCS, OEM, and Cherry profile.

I am the complete opposite, because I can't use the arrows any other way now than Vim has trained my brain!

I really envy you, I'd like to be more into Vim, but I just cannot do it. I have tried several times to use Vim, and its approach for my PC tasks in general, but I just cannot achieve enough productivity. My bad! I am a Vim agnostic :(

Vim always just clicked (no pun intended) with me (Vim's "modes" and "sentences" rather than multiple key "chords"), and I liked how it can be anywhere there's a terminal window (phone, tablet, fancy desktop battlestation, etc.), but I promise I won't try to convert you. (unless this counts!)

Might have mentioned this stuff in the other thread, maybe not, but anyhow thanks for making these available.

The hjkl keys are a cool idea, but just wondering how long you've been using vim?  I can't think of the last time I've actually used arrow key navigation.. there's much more efficient ways to navigate.

Now I understand that it's just for the novelty / aesthetics of it, I mean I doubt the majority of the people on this board (let alone vim users) even need legends on their keyboards.  What would be really cool is something for my leader key..

A few weeks back Melissa posted the 1u r3 SA vim cap, wondering if you had plans to get the same in DSA?  or in other rows?

Thank you for the tip and yeah there is no 1u vim key DSA on sale here, there was a GB for them some months ago, you may try the classifieds to see if someone wants to part with one.

Hello skaloola,

I've been using Vim for nine, almost ten years, so you guessed correctly that this is purely for style/aesthetics. That's also why I added the caps replacement, because I most associate that key mentally with Vim. The idea of a 1u to replace your leader key is a good idea too (if I understand you correctly). I used to use , as my leader, and I think that would look cool if I still did (I now use Space, and I don't think I would like that as much).

If I make selling these work, I will get creative stocking up for a round two. I think adding DSA 1u Vim keys would be a no-brainer. SA would require some deliberation, however, since a Row 1 1u (SP is selling Row 3, but it seems to me most sets are fully-sculpted now) would be be a good Escape replacement, but choosing rows for leader replacements would be tougher to stock because of personal preference (Row 1, 3, and 4, probably, but in what quantity?).

Thank you for looking and for getting my wheels turning.

I think having a 1u vim key in rows 1, 3, and 4 would be great.  I'm not sure what a leader key replacement icon might be, but actually I was thinking of using one of those hash bang keys from round 5..

It might also be nice to have a variation of the legend, like the version of the logo that's just the V (rather than Vim).  On my phone but this is the first one that came up:

I was also able to drop international shipping (I'm in the US) by a few dollars, in case that helps...

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

Thank you for your order! I am sorry for the long wait you've had, and I included a discount code for any future order you might want to place.

I have often considered adding DCS or OEM profile to the store, but I am not really making the economics work out as it is (I often don't make enough to cover the Shopify monthly fees). I'll send you an email if this ever changes.

No worries I am still waiting for granite to ship from MD but I have them stuck to my fridge so I can see them everyday. They look amazing!! I'll keep my fingers crossed on dcs/oem. I was also curious if you had any of the 1u dsa (or sa) vim logo caps? I've seen pictures of them floating around but didn't see them for sale.

Hi, people seem to be wanting to buy these keys (check out mechmarket at reddit) - are you interested in re-supplying your store, or making a groupbuy, or anything? Perhaps aiming for all 3 profiles (SA, DSA, Cherry/DCS), and/or adding another 1-2 "programmers" keys (e.g. an Emacs logo key, a >_ terminal key, stuff like that).

If not, would it be ok if I'd ask for the same keycaps at Signature Plastics, in order either to organize something, or to see if they intend to make those keys available directly at their store?

Thanks

Hello,

I think I can do another buy. Let me gather for info and I'll report back. I never was able to find a way to make them in Cherry profile, but I can do DCS.

That would be great! Thanks! :)

DCS should be close enough to Cherry on row 3, as far as I know :) But, it's true that Cherry profile is a task for GMK, as in your last link.

Personally, I'm interested in the SA profile, with some tentative looks at the DSA profile (because I didn't buy a DSA set, thinking I won't like it, but - one has to try first :D ) I think SA got some momentum, and there are a number of queued SA-profile keysets in the making at Signature Plastics.

Well, any news?   :D

Sorry for the delay. I am going to do a limited SA buy (maybe DCS if there is enough interest), but I am still finalizing the details. Planning on all one set (likely the HJKL, caps-replacement, and R1-1u keys), a tiered pricing structure, with early purchasers getting a lower price, and 200 orders max. I will send out final details on my mailing list (sign ups at vimcaps.com).

Excellent, that's not just any news, that's the best news! I am totally in for three sets!  :)

Awesome news!

Is there any hope for a second DSA run as well?  What would be the MOQ's needed for that to happen?
