an excellent VIM plugin for all their IDEs

sorry, no. If you think that, then you never actually used vim. Tried all of them, always miss some feature right when I get to speed typing (and thus my typed text turns into a mess).

EDIT: unless I misunderstood, and you mean there are plugins for vim, that let you use functionality of these IDEs. My first thought was you're talking about 'vim mode' plugin for the IDE.

 
 

While I agree that all Vim plugins eventually fall short somewhere, to say that "If you think that, then you never actually used vim" is unnecessarily harsh. For a Vim beginner a plugin is plenty, and lets them focus on the basic motions etc while still staying within a familiar environment.

If the plugin eventually falls short somewhere, then it can't be called "excellent", don't you think?

Although being a vim-lover I did react too harshly, sorry for that.
