github logo ・1 min read

Chris Toomey demoed using vim and focus on the edit language of vi.

He gave an interesting and simple example, deleting inner. (di") will delete words in "".

di'
di(
dip
dit

p=paragraph, t=tag html

These are really useful.

End

Vim is not only an editor, it's an edit language first.

Even you use VCode you can use vim mode.

He gave a ref doc Learning Vim in 2014: Vim as Language

This is a fantastic talk, really speaking to the strengths of the tool and its philosophy. I'm an avid vim user but I often lose sight of this stuff. Also, immediately added vim-surround to my plugins. Works like a charm.
