I have used Vim for a really long time. Probably the first editor that made sense after using
ed. Sure there are many others
but Vim has always been there for me when I was installing different Operating Systems. Yes, its totally possible I just made some visitors
that come to this site really frustrated because they love Emacs. To you I will say:
The best editor is the one you are most comfortable with
This is my learnings for Vim and how I have used it over the years to help manage it better. Not a entry on how to use Vim itself. There are plenty of tutorials on how to learn and practive Vim.
I have usually gone for Pathogen but I have also tried a couple others. Your milage may vary. Just pick one instead of doing the work manually… unless you really want to work harder, in which case, ^5 to you.
I did try this project out, but they have catered more to Vim side of things and not the Emacs of things (for very obvious reasons). This has left me a little confused and having to learn lots of keys that are am not familiure with when coming from Spacemacs.
Still a great project and I know a couple of people who really enjoy it very much.
