I have been using vi/vim for about 10+ years. It is my favorite editor, as I rarely use other editors -- I use vi whenever possible.
I use firefox for browser with the vimperator extension. Here is my .vimperatorrc file
" 0.5.3 (created: 2007/12/21 19:26:07) " vim: set ft=vimperator: set titlestring=Firefox map c :tabnext<CR> map e :tabprevious<CR> map a :back<CR> map f :forward<CR> map b <PageUp> map s :stop<CR> map <BS> <NOP> map <F8> :set guioptions=mT<CR>I set hlsearch " set hintchars=aiopqwertnmzxcv set noshowmode set laststatus=2 map gg :set go=<CR> map gt :set go=T<CR> map gm :set go=m<CR> map gb :set go=b<CR>
It is geared toward left hand navigation (forward/backword/tabprev/tabnext/delete) etc, as the right hand often needs to touch the mouse.
It would be great to share with others on computing tips. I stick to the KISS principle whenever possible (given the time constraint)
Pages I have contributed in:
- Working with CSV files
- Formatting paragraphs in LaTeX: an "environment-aware gqap"
- Text (Especially LaTeX) Formatter
- Improve the Working with CSV files code. See the wish list on that page.
- Improve the LaTeX/Text formatter. This is less priority as I think it is already quite usable / pleasant to use.
- Learn the 'formatexpr' option of VIM. So far, I have not seen a good example of how to use it.
